Ahead of the official opening season, Flag Fen Archaeology Park is opening for free for anyone living in Fenland on Saturday 29th March between 11am-3pm.
The day aims to build upon and enhance the relationship between Flag Fen Archaeology Park and the local Fenland community. The aim is to strengthen those links in light of the recent transfer of the Must Farm log boats from Cambridgeshire County Council to Peterborough, and welcome special interest groups, community groups, schools, councillors and business owners from or associated with the Fenland District to the day. It will enable Fenland residents to discover more about the conservation of the prehistoric Must Farm boats, discovered in nearby Whittlesey, and to explore the archaeological significance and unique nature of the Flag Fen site and Fenland area.
All families in Fenland can attend the day for free and the park will be offering plenty of fun activities; including having a go at ancient crafts, exploring trails, trying pond dipping and viewing the Must Farm boats. This event is just the start of an exciting season of educational and informative events at Flag Fen, which re-opens to the public on Saturday 5th April.
