Flag Fen

Flag Fen Archaeology Park sits upon a unique Bronze Age landscape that has revealed a mysterious timber causeway and platform constructed 3,300 years ago.

More than 60,000 upright timbers and 250,000 horizontal planks are buried under the ground along with many swords and personal items given as offerings to the watery fen.

You can see parts of the timber monument, a reconstructed roundhouse, sheep and the famous ‘Must Farm’ Bronze Age boats whilst they are being conserved.

The site is also home to an abundance of wildlife owing to the variety of habitats, which includes extensive grassland, traditionally managed hedgerows and woodland and a freshwater lake.

Located on the edge of the city, Flag Fen is a unique family experience that blends history with wildlife, creating a feeling of tranquility and wonder.

Heritage for schools.

We're proud to hold the Quality Badge for Learning Outside the Classroom and welcome pre-visits.

Throughout the academic year we run a varied programme for schools, as well as tours of our pre-historic site for school-aged groups.

From exploring pre-historic life and building a Roman Empire, to learning to become an archaeologist in our indoor simulated archaeological dig tent, we offer a raft of fun and educational activities for pupils.
