About Flag Fen

Flag Fen is famous for being the site of an ancient bronze age causeway, discovered by Time Team’s Francis Pryor. At Flag Fen, you can discover what life was like for our prehistoric ancestors in a reconstructed Bronze Age village. Follow the footsteps of our ancestors and explore the reconstructed prehistoric landscape and discover treasures from over 3000 years ago. The park that you can visit today was first laid out in 1987 on the site of the earlier platform excavation, becoming a place for experimental archaeology and for public engagement.

The Archaeology Park has since grown to cover almost the entire length of the causeway, making it an important haven for archaeology and wildlife, protecting the site from urban and agricultural disturbance. Visit the museum to see one of the earliest wheels discovered in Britain, experience what life was like in a Bronze Age round house and children can have a go at archaeology in ‘The big dig’ – a mock-up of an archaeological dig. Top off your day with a relaxing light lunch and treat in the café whilst the kids explore the play area.
