Rotten Bottom, site of an archaeological find
Rotten Bottom, site of an archaeological find
This unprepossessing stretch of upland peat bog was, in 1990, the site of a chance find of the remains of the oldest longbow found in Britain. The yew wood was carbon dated at between 4040 and 3640 BC, i.e. at least 5650 years.
