Flag Fen, on the outskirts of Peterborough is at the junction of the land with the low lying Fens. Here in the early 1980s was discovered a bronze age causeway since subject to much archaeological study and re-construction. It shares the same prehistoric landscape with the recent discoveries of the platform settlement at Must Farm near Whittlesey.  Sarah Wilson is the archaeologist at Flag Fen and can tell us about the discoveries, their significance and conservation and careful   reconstruction of the Bronze Age landscape. Flag Fen has enabled an understanding and appreciation of the life in the Bronze Age.
