An exhibition will be held to showcase the rare archaeological discoveries made in a Berkshire quarry and the stories behind them.

Among the finds at Kingsmead Quarry, Horton, were four Neolithic houses thought to make up one of the oldest settlements ever found in England.

Other finds at the site suggest people have used the area since the end of the last Ice Age, about 12,000 years ago.

The free exhibition will be at Wraysbury Village Hall on 27 April.

Archaeologists, who have been excavating on the site for 10 years, said the discovery of the 5,700-year-old Neolithic house foundations was “unprecedented”.

Dr Alistair Barclay, of Wessex Archaeology, said it was the first time more than one house from this time had been found on a single site in England. Read more.
