This news is about history. There is a place in England. It is near Cambridgeshire. Archaeologists call it the British Pompeii.

It is an archaeological site. It is full of interesting things. These things are 3000 years old. The things are well-preserved.

For example, archaeologists find a wheel. This is the oldest wheel in Britain. They also find bowls. There are pieces of food in the bowls. The experts say that this is amazing. It is like steeping into somebody’s life or somebody’s home.

Difficult words: archaeologist (a person who studies human history), archaeological site (a place where you can find historical things), preserved (good, not broken).
