ARCHAEOLOGISTS believe they have discovered a site where soldiers were buried after the Battle of Naseby was fought.

Experts from Cranfield University studied the battlefield at the end of last month.

They believe they have found the spot where dozens of soldiers were buried immediately after the battle in 1645.

Naseby expert, Martin Marix Evans, said: “We hope this will be the start of a series of archaeological studies of parts of the battlefield.”
