Kate Middleton is in the headlines as she becomes engaged to Prince William but news that she went to school in Pangbourne is not what it seems. St Andrew’s School is some way south-west of the Thames-side village.
However, besides the royal story in tonight’s Evening Standard is the announcement that a Roman village has been discovered in Syon Park. This shows how the site was a strategic one and near a crossing. Only a few years ago another dig found the base of a church as a large as a cathedral east of the main house.
The Daily Mail also has more details and a map.
