Prehistoric fireplace

 Stone Age fireplace discovered on Sainsbury retail site
The UK retail chain Sainsbury’s has discovered one of the hassles of operating in Scotland, where a Stone Age fireplace has been discovered on the proposed site for a new store and gas station.

The construction of a modern stop for travellers has been delayed so that the ancient stop for travellers can be properly documented.

The  BBC reports that Sainsbury’s will begin building and installing its customary freezers full of prawn sandwiches only after archaeologists have investigated the site.

According to  a plan released by Headland Archaeology, which will take responsibility for the dig at the Balmakeith Industrial Estate in Nairn, there are a number of hearths at the site not only from the Mesolithic period, but also from the Bronze Age.
