Dig for Bronze Age King's Ditch in Herefordshire

Archaeologists have begun excavating a site in Herefordshire, which they believe may reveal a 3,000-year-old earth trench called the King's Ditch.

Border Archaeology firm is digging in the former Kemble car park in Aubrey Street, Hereford, near the cathedral.

It said the ditch was an important Bronze Age site that could yield historical treasures and it expected to find it about 4m (13ft) underground.

The site is currently earmarked to be developed for social housing.
