KS3 School Session

Journey through time with our knowledgeable guides and explore the site as our ancestors once did. Discover how our ancestors used natural materials for food, medicine and to make things.

What evidence will you find at the Flag Fen for how people managed the changing landscape? View a section of the Bronze Age causeway in situ and learn about the Fen Causeway, a section of Roman road, which runs through the site. Discoveries at the local Must Farm archaeological site are also interwoven into this session. You will have the opportunity to learn about the Must Farm boats: 8 Bronze and Iron Age log boats which are being conserved at Flag Fen.
