Archaeologists have begun the first dig at an Iron Age hill fort above the Caerau housing estate in Cardiff. Experts say it is one of the most significant of its kind in Europe, and re-writes history, proving the area was an important stronghold long before the Romans came. Nick Palit went to view the dig and spoke to Dr Oliver Davies from Cardiff University.

bog shoes found on an iron age bog person. Why the world would they put so much effort into making those waffly laces? I though back then shoes were supposed to keep you warm and dry as possible. Those look very fashion conscious!

Huldre Fen Woman was found in a peat bog in Jutland, Denmark, in 1879 and is one of the best preserved and well-dressed bog bodies ever found. Her costume consists of two leather cloaks, a chequered wool scarf, a chequered wool skirt and probably an under-dress made of nettle fibres. (Photo: National Museum, Denmark)

The Thorsberg chape is a bronze piece belonging to a scabbard. An archeological find from the Thorsberg moor, Germany, that appears to have been deposited as a votive offering. It bears an Elder Futhark runic inscription, one of the earliest known, dating to roughly 200 AD. The artifact has been localized on archeological grounds to the region between the Rhine and the Elbe.
