The late Bronze Age in Britain is a period whose importance is growing rapidly. Many of the practices which became common the better-known so-called 'Celtic' world of the Iron Age have roots which extend back to the later second millennium BC.
Flag Fen is one of the best-preserved Late Bronze Age sites yet found in Britain. It was discovered in 1982 and consists of many tens of thousands of timbers which were driven into the muddy waters of a fen on the outskirts of the city of Peterborough, between 1300 and 900 BC. Hundreds of valuable objects, including swords, daggers and jewellery, were dropped into the water around the timbers as offerings.
Francis Pryor and his team have been working in the Peterborough region since 1971. He is the author of many academic reports and popular books and a regular contributor to Time Team and his own programmes on Channel 4.
