Bronze Age dwellings in Cambridgeshire
Archaeologists working in Cambridgeshire have uncovered what they believe to be the "best-preserved Bronze Age dwellings ever found in Britain". The excavation at Must Farm quarry is described and illustrated in this report from the BBC News website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-35280290
It is noteworthy that the finds suggest a higher level of sophistication in the life of the settlement than has hitherto been assumed. That seems so often to be the case with archaeological discoveries. We still are prone to understimate our ancestors and predecessors.
