British Pompeii - level 2
In England, archaeologists found a 3000-year-old wooden wheel. It is very well-preserved. It is the oldest and most complete wheel found in Britain.
It is only one of many finds at the site near Cambridgeshire. Last month, experts discovered pieces of food in bowls. Somebody was eating the food when a fire destroyed the village. One archaeologist said that it was like stepping into somebody’s life or somebody’s home.
These discoveries give archaeologists a new picture about the way people lived between 1100-800 bc. The team who is working there calls the site a British version of the Roman town of Pompeii.
Difficult words: preserved (something preserved is not damaged), find noun (something that is found), site (an area), bc (before Christ – a very long time ago).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
