Archaeologists excavating at least five 3,000 year old circular wooden houses on stilts in the East Anglian fens have pieced together the daily lives of a Late Bronze Age (1000 - 800BC) community through a number of extraordinary finds. The 10 month excavation, which is now coming to an end, has revealed how Bronze Age houses were constructed, what household goods they had, what they ate and how their clothes were made.
The specialist team working at the site, known as 'Must Farm' at Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire have uncovered the finest collection of Bronze Age fabrics and one of the largest collections of Bronze Age glass ever found in Britain.
