Great Fire of London re-examined

An exhibition is aiming to shed new light on what happened 350 years ago when an enormous fire tore through the streets of London.
Archaeologists at the Museum of London have been analysing burnt roof tiles and even X-raying lumps of rock in a bid to learn more.
Historians still dispute exactly what happened and how so much destruction came from a baker's oven on Pudding Lane.
