Hill fort dates back 3,000 years


From the BBC News:


Archaeologists have discovered that a hill fort in Denbighshire may be almost 3,000 years old.


Experts excavated Moel y Gaer in the Clwydian Range after tests suggested the Iron Age settlement (700 BC to 34 AD) might be older than first thought.


Samples of metal slag and dry stone facing taken from an entrance suggest parts may date back to the Bronze Age (2,300 BC to 700 BC).

It is hoped carbon dating will identify the exact age of the samples.
