      Amateur archaeologists find ancient 'thyng' in Sherwood Forest
      24 Hour Museum [UK], 25/04/2008

      Amateur history buffs have uncovered an important archaeological feature
      called Thynghowe in Sherwood Forest and are working with archaeologists
      and forestry officials to unravel the secrets of the ancient meeting
      place dating back to at least Viking times. The discovery was made by
      history lover and former teacher Lynda Mallett, together with husband
      Stuart Reddish and John Wood, after they used an old "perambulation"
      document dating to 1816, which led them to the hill and a series of
      historic boundary stones.

      The site had vanished from modern maps and was essentially lost to
      history until the local enthusiasts made their discoveries. Experts
      think the rediscovered site, which lies amidst the gnarled old oaks of
      an area known as the Birklands in Sherwood Forest, may also yield clues
      as to the boundary of the ancient Anglo Saxon Kingdoms of Mercia and
      Northumbria.
