Photos, art
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.

How did you get the picture of the stoat?

It was bouncing trough long grass and hiding under wooden pallets. I stood still and waited. Also, a 300mm telephoto lens helped.

So cool, to see them in the wild.
Thank you!

That is STOTALLY Amazing! Also, I am jealous, and wondering if I can sneak an extra day into next year's trip.

They should have finished rebuilding the bronze-age and iron-age houses by then.

I can't guarantee stoats, though.

Flag Fen is here

You weaseled that photo out of that stoat, didn't you? ;D
