Ancient bones from Iron age or Roman settlement

Archaeologists who discovered human remains close to the A453 in Nottinghamshire believe they're from a late Iron age or early Roman settlement.
The bones which date back around two thousand years, were found in shallow graves during work to turn the road into a dual carriageway.
As well as the human remains, archaeologists unearthed pottery and jewellery including a jet bracelet.
