Nottingham - Archaeological remains from the Ice Age have been found near Nottinghamshire by workmen widening the A46 to turn it into a dual carriageway.
Flint tools dating back to 11,000BC were found at Fardon during work on the road, the find is the second archaeological finding after pieces of Roman roads and pottery fragments were also found.
More than 100 archaeologists have worked to ensure the remains are preserved, recorded and recovered on the stretch of road between Newark and Widmerpool.
Geoff Bethel project manager said we expected to recover roman artifacts as the A46 follows the route of a Roman road. But to uncover such rare Ice Age tools is very exciting.
