Join Mark Knight from the Cambridge Archaeological Unit for a presentation taking place at Flag Fen Archaeology Park.

“A basinful of complexity – sediment and settlement in the Bronze Age Flag Fen Basin”

This presentation describes the archaeology of the Flag Fen Basin from the perspective of its ever-changing environment through the second millennium BC. From the barrow-fields of the Nene Washes through to the newly discovered timber causeways at Stanground, it will chronicle the dynamic relationship between settlement and the rising saturation in this enduringly important prehistoric landscape.

General admission fees to Flag Fen Archaeology Park apply on arrival however there will be no additional charges to attend the talk. Limited seats available, please click the link to book your ticket for the talk.
