"We&#039;ve been working with [a fire] investigator who works a lot with modern fires, and he thinks there&#039;s a good chance that the fire was set deliberately," said Selina Davenport, an archaeologist at the University of Cambridge. "For that to have spread from something like a spark off a hearth is unlikely," Davenport told Live Science.</p><br clear="all"/>
