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.
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
