Fin Cop Hill Fort Dig

In August 209, a group from the The Longstone Local History Group digging on the site of an Iron Age hill fort at Fin Cop, near Monsl Dale in the Pek District unearthed a crushed skeleton, buried under the collapsd ramparts.

Since then, it has been discovered that the remains are those of a pregnant woman, thrown into the ditch as the stone walls were pushed in, around 30-200 BC. A second dig is being planned at the site, and the body is still being examined.

HAD is planning to contact the archaeologists to offer support.
