TeV J2032+4130 is the first extended very high energy gamma-ray source and has remained enigmatic since its discovery because of the lack of identification. We report here deep radio observations covering the TeV J2032+4130 field and revealing for the first time an extended and diffuse radio emission, as well as a remarkable population of compact radio sources. Some of these radio sources are in positional coincidence with X-ray and optical/IR sources. Future follow-up studies of these new…
