I had an interesting call from someone who knows the archaeology team. He tells me that three boats were found on the route of the road and the evidence has been hidden. They sent the wood off for testing and found that it was two or three centuries after the Invasion. The key is it proves that boats were moving up and down the waterway and the claim that this was not a port is shot. Apparently everyone known except us and so it is time to ask questions of those who know as they had a duty to tell us. I hope that a journalist will after this weekend ask the County Archaeologist and English Heritage to explain.
What this shows is a number of things – firstly the people in charge cannot be trusted with anything. They will claim this is unimportant and it is not and secondly the boats are out there. I need the details of exactly where they were.
