A "WEALTH of history" has been uncovered at the former Cutacre site, say archaeologists.

Excavation of the site have revealed activity at the site, ranging from prehistoric round house, medieval ironworking and more modern coal mining.

Ian Miller from Oxford North Archaeology will be discussing the historical artefacts found at the site when he gives a speech to Bolton Archaeology and Egyptology Society (BAES).

The area off the M61 is currently being developed to create the Logistics North site, a £200 million industrial and retail estate which will offer around four million sq foot of distribution and manufacturing space.

Aldi and MDMA have already agreed to move their regional headquarters into the site when it is complete.

The lecture takes place on Tuesday, January 20 at 7.30pm at The Friends Meeting House on Silverwell Street, Bolton town centre.

Entry for members of BAES is £1, for non-members is £5 and refreshments will be served from 7.15pm.
