Bronze Age Centre & Archaeology Park

Flag Fen Bronze Age Centre and Archaeology Park is one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe, home to a unique ancient wooden monument. A kilometre long wooden causeway and platform have been preserved for 3500 years in the wetland.

Bronze Age people drove more than 60 000 posts into the ground in five parallel lines and laid many hundreds of thousands of horizontal planks. The site is believed to have been built and used by the fen people as a place of worship and ritual for more than 1000 years.
