Unexcavated Hampshire Urnfield to be Dozed

In fairness, I suppose it's next to impossible to build anything in Europe without destroying archaeological material.  In this case, it's at least the Late Bronze Age, although it probably covers an older site.  The cavalier nature of development is what bothers me.  Once the bulldozers go in, there's no going back for "The Urnfield".

The Yateley, Hampshire urnfield dates to at least the Late Bronze Age, however it has never been excavated so what the full extent of the 25 acres contains, nobody knows.
