Hampshire archaeologists discover Stone Age boatyard

Hampshire Archaeologist Gary Momber, a WARP Contributor in the past, has had an amazing new discovery: 

An 8,000-year-old “High Street” has been discovered in the Solent by Hampshire archaeologists.

The Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology has been working on the underwater section near Bouldnor since 1999.

However, it was only last summer they discovered the boat-building site, which has not been disturbed for centuries.

The discovery is of international importance according to the trust, as it sheds new light on how people lived in the Mesolithic period.
