The most amazing competition we've ever run! A chance of a lifetime! Flag Fen is a lakeside Celtic site which has become revealed as the years have taken all the water away. Now is your chance to take part in the incredible Flag Fen Lives project! It is estimated that a large part of the site will be lost within the next 20 years if work is not carried out now. That is why Flag Fen Lives is so important and our competition will put you right in this real-time, hands-on discovery of Ancient Celtic life! Work at Flag Fen has given a fantastic insight into the type of woodworking technology that existed some 3,000 years ago. The remarkable preservation of the timbers has led to more detailed interpretation of our prehistoric ancestors. Flag Fen is a continuing research project and we frequently make discoveries that cause us to change our interpretations. Regular visitors to the site will notice slight alterations to guided tours run throughout the summer. As our work advances and our research develops, we gain a clearer picture of life at Flag Fen 3,000 years ago. So remember, what you read (or are told) is only the current state of research. One of the most exciting aspects of Flag Fen is seeing it change and develop as more work is undertaken We hope you enjoy it and wish you good luck!
