ANOTHER chunk of a rare space rock has been dug up in a muddy field.
Experts believe it is part of a 4.5billion-year-old meteorite, thought to be the first to land in Britain in 30 years.
The latest find was in the Cotswolds village of Woodmancote[/caption]
The latest fragment was unearthed about four miles from the first.
The yellow-green rock, containing the building blocks of life, is bigger than the original find. And it bears a likeness to a human face, some say.
It almost certainly belongs to the same meteor which was seen burning up over Gloucestershire in February.
