Major Hereford archaelogical find to be unveiled...

'Herefordshire Council has found a section of laid stone surface dating from the early Bronze Age, the only discovery of its kind in Europe... The surface appears to be made of fired pieces of stone laid out in the shape of a serpent. Part of the surface will be intersected by a new road but, fortunately, not destroyed; the new road will be laid over the Bronze Age surface and the rest investigated.

'Archaeologists believe this major find may have no parallels in Europe, with the closest similar artefact being the 2,000-year-old serpent mounds of the Ohio river valley in America.'

David, I trust Andrew Collins will be interested in the above? Any reaction?

perhaps a linkette between Yellow ribbons and the Roherwas Ribbon.
Certainly comes nowhere near Tamala;s hospital link - sublime

sorry but I couldn't help thinking of that Sheryl Crow song 'every day is a winding road.' I'm glad they decided to preserve it though. Here in the U.S. they'd build over it. That's what they do with most old structures here
