Under comprehensive supervision of historians the valuable findings has been excavated and filmed.
The discovery included remains of a Mosquito aircraft and has been located in a farm field near to a Norfolk air base. The Mosquito was nicknamed the 'wooden wonder' as metal was in short supply and the majority was made of wood.
