About Flag Fen

Flag Fen Archaeology Park sits in the midst of a unique Bronze Age landscape that has revealed a mysterious timber causeway and platform made by people 3,500 years ago. At the heart of the Flag Fen basin and steeped in pre-history, the park is also a place for nature to survive and thrive.

Flag Fen Archaeology Park is a fascinating place where visitors can see remains of the well-preserved mysterious causeway and explore the prehistoric site packed full of amazing stories. 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.
