Amazing Bronze Age Discovery in the UK

They’re calling it the ‘Peterborough Pompeii.’ A group of Bronze Age roundhouses that are in almost the exact same condition as when they were built and occupied.Must-Farm-Round-House-1

Woven materials, fish weirs, log boats, votive offerings, and more. The houses, built on stilts apparently caught fire and dropped in almost perfect condition into the water beneath. Other recent finds include exotic glass beads forming part of an elaborate necklace, rare small cups, bowls and jars complete with past meals still inside and textiles made of plant fibres such as lime tree bark.
If you’re a fan of Time Team you’ll know the name Francis Pryor, whose enthusiasm on the show for all things Bronze Age reminds me of a kid at Christmas. Click on his name for his article about the site.
What follows are some photos of the amazing discovery and its finds:
