Archaeologists have long believed that while the Egyptians were building pyramids 3,000 years ago, nothing was happening in Western Europe, but a new discovery shows something far different. Five years ago, the remains of an incredible, ancient site began to emerge from a quarry in eastern England. Due to its delicate nature, experts have largely been working in secret, until now.

Normally, I would find a PBS documentary of a major Bronze-Age dig, in a country that I lived in for over 20 years, to be absolutely fascinating. However, it had me dozing off several times. Finding a stilt-village buried in mud, with some bronze and textile artefacts, as well as trade items from far-away sites (African ostrich-shell beads, etc.) must be red meat for archaeologists. For the general viewer, however, the real Pompeii is a lot more impressive than what has been grandiloquently referred to as "Britain's Pompeii."

Good, but the title is misleading, as this has nothing to do with Stonehenge (other than use it as a reference point - 1000 years later), but is an exploration of what has been termed "Britain's Pompeii," a previously-buried, very small settlement in the Fens.

Absolutely fascinating PBS show. Very well done as you'd expect.
