Flag Fen Bronze Age Excavation

Recommended
It is on marshland surrounded by an industrial zone that remains have been revealed dating back more than 3,000 years old. The small museum in the visitor centre has a wonderful exhibition of bronze spears, harnesses, bracelets and pots. A footpath leads to a reconstruction of a circular hut with a peat roof, such as would have existed around 1500BC, passing a section of an old Roman road along its route.
