At Flag Fen archaeologists have discovered the preserved remains of a huge timber monument to our ancestors. Today part of the remains can be viewed in an undercover display hall that contains a 60 metre wall painting showing how the people of the past lived in this part of the Fens some 3,000 years ago.

The BBC are sponsoring a free history/learning fun day on 20th
March 2011.
