About This Book

The Fens of eastern England form a very distinct environment which has produced particular patterns of prehistoric occupation. Dr Francis Pryor, the Director of the Flag Fen Archaeological Trust, gives his own personal account of his discovery and excavation of this now-famous Bronze Age site near Peterborough. In addition to the Bronze Age ditched field systems, the massive timber platform and the avenue of posts with votive deposits, Dr Pryor describes the Neolithic pit grave on the site and the later Iron Age village. This is an updated, expanded and re-illustrated edition of a book first published over 10 years ago.
