Archaeologists have unearthed artifacts that are believed to be the last battle of the English civil war, including musket balls, horse harness fittings, and a sword, for example.

The items were discovered in Powick, Worcestershire, england, was the setting for the bloody Battle of Worcester. The historians knew that Powick was the scene of the battle, but so far, no items have been found.

“The finding of these styles is to enable us to make a connection to a significant moment in Worcestershire’s history”, Councillor Lucy Hodgson, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Communities, said in a statement. “I, too, am glad to see the great work both in a team and with the co-operation between the construction team and the archaeologists, that fits to the counts in this scheme of its construction. The preservation of our history, it is of vital importance to our country, and this is the last dig is a prime example of how archaeology can bring the past to life.”

“I have no doubt that there will be fighting in this location, on the 3rd of September 1651. The parliamentary troops had crossed the river at Upton-upon-Severn, and driving the Royalists back to Worcester,” Shaw continued. “The discovery is really about the events of that day, have to live with it.”
