Archaeologists have uncovered Britain's “Pompeii” after discovering the “best-preserved Bronze Age dwellings ever found” in the country.
The circular wooden houses, built on stilts, form part of a settlement at Must Farm quarry, in Cambridgeshire, and date to about 1000-800 BC.
A fire destroyed the posts, causing the houses to fall into a river where silt helped preserve the contents.
