Flag Fen near Peterborough is one of the best-preserved Late Bronze Age sits yet found in Britain. It was discovered in 1982 and consists of many tens of thousands of timbers which were driven into the muddy waters of a fen on the outskirts of modern Peterborough, between about 1300 and 900 BC. Hundreds of valuable objects, including swords, daggers and jewellery, were dropped into the water around the timbers, as offerings.Flag Fen was opened to the public in 1987 and is now a major visitor attraction. It was also the subject of a first-of-its-kind crowdsourced and crowdfunded archaeological dig during the summer of 2012, organised by Digventures.This specially commissioned work, written by archaeologist and discoverer of Flag Fen, Francis Pryor MBE, provides a concise companion to anyone seeking an authoritative introduction to this remarkable site.Contents:1 The Fens in a Nutshell2 Background: The Landscape of Flag Fen3 The Discovery of Flag Fen4 The Post Alignment5 The Platform6 The Finds7 The Religious Ceremonies8 Interpretation: What Does it all Mean?9 Wood, Wheels and Status10 The Sophistication of Ancient Technology11 Flag Fen and the Public12 Flag Fen Threatened13 Flag Fen: The FutureAbout the AuthorFrancis Pryor has been researching the Fens of Eastern England since 1970.
