It's emerged that an ancient village in Cambridgeshire was just a few months old when it burnt down.
Archaeologists have been studying the 'Must Farm' site in Whittlesey for the last 10 months and have described it as "the Pompeii of the Fens."
They have now discovered the settlement was only there for a short time before it was engulfed by flames 3,000 years ago.
