Archaeologists in the Czech Republic are hailing the discovery of a Neolithic well as the oldest man-made wooden structure in the world. Dendrochronology – the process of dating tree rings to the exact year they were made – has proved this well comes from either 5,256 or 5,255 BC, i.e. the end of the Stone Age. Rob Cameron has more from the Czech city of Olomouc.
