The exciting dig was followed by a special presentation by the university’s Professor Mark White for schools and groups at Anston Parish Hall.

Anston Parish Councillor Christine Sandler said: “The Stones, along with Creswell Crags, are remnants from the days when hyenas, lions and rhinos roamed our lands.

“This is another reminder, if we needed one, of the significance of the Stones and how lucky Anston residents are to have it on our doorstep.”
