Have you seen this?
'Archaeologists have unearthed what is thought to be one of the
largest Neolithic settlements in Britain, which was probably
associated with a nearby series of nine prehistoric ritual centres.
The discovery, which includes buildings, a human burial pit, tools,
pottery and ritual objects, was uncovered at a Northumberland quarry.
The discovery was made during routine archaeological
investigation of the quarry, which is run by Tarmac. The settlement,
near Milfield Village, Northumberland, includes at least three
buildings dating to the 4000 BCE Early Neolithic period and three
buildings from the 3000 BCE Later Neolithic period. '
from my archaeology news available from www.stonepages.com: I thought it might interest you, being from Northumberland.
