More on the Roman remains found at Windy Ridge

The Harborough Mail has more information about the Roman remains found at Windy Ridge - the site of a controversial new housing development:
Roman remains discovered at the controversial Windy Ridge site in Harborough include pieces of pottery and the remains of a small farm or settlement, archaeologists have revealed. 
A team working at Windy Ridge off Glebe Road have found ditches containing Roman pottery on the site of what they believe was once a farm or small settlement occupied between the first and fourth centuries... 
The archaeologists, who began their work in March, will now submit a report to the council, which will take the find into consideration when deciding whether to grant planning permission.
The photograph, taken from a distance, shows how the site can be seen from across the town.
