Thanks to my mom for sending me this one -- archaeologists have discovered what is most likely England's oldest dwelling place
. A home has been discovered near a lake in Scarborough, in northern England, and researchers think the circular shaped house was built in about 8,500 B.C. Nicky Milner from the University of York said, "This is a sensational discovery and tells us so much about the people who lived at this time... From this excavation, we gain a vivid picture of how these people lived."
Artifacts found at the site include "part of an oar, arrow tips and deer skulls." The house was built of timber posts and had a roof of thatched reeds, and was constructed at a time when England was still connected to the rest of Europe.
