At Flag Fen

Revisiting the bronze-age site to take more photos. The day was nice, unlike the last time.

Flag Fen as it looked before drainage and agriculture. This is a small patch recreated using local grasses, rushes and plants.

A small section of the bronze age causeway posts, built c 1350BC. The posts are in-situ, protected by a wet-room that sprays water to stop them drying out.
