Bronze Age Wheel found in East Anglia
19 February 2016
A complete Bronze Age wheel believed to be the largest and earliest of its kind found in the UK has been unearthed. The 3,000-year-old artefact was found at a site dubbed "Britain's Pompeii", at Must Farm in Cambridgeshire. Archaeologists have described the find - made close to the country's "best-preserved Bronze Age dwellings" - as "unprecedented". Still containing its hub, the 3ft-diameter (one metre) wooden wheel dates from about 1,100 to 800 BC. The wheel was found close to the largest of one of the roundhouses found at the settlement last month.
