2,000-year-old burial site found in Lexden
AN IRON Age burial site dating back 2,000 years has been uncovered beneath a Lexden golf club.
The discovery was made during work at PlayGolf Colchester, in Bakers Lane, on a new £1 million clubhouse development.
Members of the Colchester Archaeological Trust have hailed the find - which dates back to circa 1-50 AD - as important because it could help develop the history of Colchester.
