Call for more time on Flintshire Roman dig
CONCERNS have been raised that archaeologists have three weeks to uncover historical finds at a Flintshire site where a substantial Roman settlement was uncovered last week.

As groundwork began on a 180-house scheme at the Croes Atti project in Oakenholt, near Flint, builders unearthed a section of Roman road, pottery and evidence of an industrial complex processing lead and silver mined at nearby Halkyn Mountain and a three-week exploration of the site is now under way.

However, North Wales Assembly Member Mark Isherwood fears this is not long enough and called for a Welsh Government Statement on the matter in this week’s Business Statement.

Speaking in the Assembly he said: "The Minister may be aware of the exciting discovery at the Croes Atti development in Oakenholt in Flintshire, where Roman artefacts and a Roman road have been unearthed.

However, although CADW is aware of the historical importance of the site, because planning permission has been granted, I believe that archaeologists have been given only three weeks to uncover any other historically important finds that may exist before the site is bulldozed.

Any news on this??
