Stone Age Fireplace Delays New Sainsbury's

Yet again, Archaeology pauses building plans -- Stone Age fireplace has been discovered on the site for a new Sainsbury's store and gas station in Scotland. The supermarket and a filling station are being constructed on the outskirts of Nairn, at a cost of about £20m.

According to the BBC scientists radiocarbon-dated the hearth to the Mesolithic period, which started as the last Ice Age ended about 12,000 years ago.
