    Smile 2,000-year-old Iron Age Wooden Road Found in Norfolk Wetlands

    A remarkably preserved Iron Age road dating back to 75BC has been discovered in East Anglia.

    Archaeologists found a 13ft-wide timber structure complete with stabilising posts running for 1,600ft (500m) across wetland near the River Waveney at Geldeston.

    The wood is in such good condition that it almost looks modern, according to experts, who believe that the structure could be the work of the Iceni tribe.

    Many people say that the Romans brought roads to England, but we have evidence that the Celts made roads before them.

    Pretty impressive that the wood is so intact, must have had little contact with oxygen during those 2000 years.

    Given the usage of wood in construction in northern climates where lumber is widely available, I wouldn't be surprised if there were advanced civilizations thousands of years ago of which all traces have vanished.
