Bronze Age houses found in Britain

Archaeologists in Cambridgeshire are excited to have uncovered what are thought to be the best preserved bronze age homes in Britain.

The village, which is three thousand years old, was built on stilts over a river and sank into the mud when a fire broke.

The homes tell us lots about the people who would have lived there. Cooking pots with food inside have been found well-preserved inside the homes, as well as clothing and even footprints.

Once the items have been cleaned and documented they will be put on public display.
