Romans at Silbury

According to the BBC here evidence has been found of a Roman settlement at Silbury Hill in Wiltshire.

The 130ft Neolithic mound near Avebury is thought to have been created some 5,o00 ago. Experts are carrying out a project to stabilise the hill and during this work evidence has been found that leads English Heritage to believe that there was a Roman community at Silbury Hill about 2,000 years ago.

This has been a long time coming - it was just waiting to be found - I am looking forward to more information about this and to be able to go and look around.
