Stone Age village found under sea
By Martin Neville - Wednesday, September 30, 2009

 A STONE age village under The Solent is in danger of being lost forever.
In a desperate race against time, marine archaeologists say the remains of a submerged Mesolithic community found at Bouldnor Cliff, off Yarmouth, could be lost to the sea if money is not found soon to continue vital excavation work.
Garry Momber, director of The Hampshire and Wight Trust for Maritime Archaeology, has been excavating the site for more than a decade and believes the latest finds this summer are the most significant to date.
"This is more comprehensive than anything I thought we would ever find and Iím sure there is an awful lot more to be uncovered," he said.
"This really is of national and international significance ó there is nothing else like it in the UK and the race is on to save what we can now. If we donít act now, these findings could be lost forever."
ē Full story of the find in the Friday, October 2, County Press.
