ypically on prehistoric sites, you are lucky to find a few pottery shards, a mere hint or shadow of organic remains; generally archaeologists have to make do, have to interpret as best they can. But this archaeological dig has turned out to be completely, thrillingly different. For the last ten months -- day by day, week by week -- the excavation has yielded up a wealth of astonishing finds including pottery, textiles, metal work and ancient timbers. The dig offers, as site manager Mark Knight from the Cambridge Archaeological Unit put it, "a genuine snapshot" of a lost world -- a prehistoric settlement from the Bronze Age some 3000 years ago.
