The Must Farm project is the first landscape scale archaeological investigation of deep Fenland. Its exploration of deeply buried deposits is transforming our understanding of prehistoric life and revealing a level of preservation previously only dreamt about.

Mark Knight is part of the team that is directing the excavations at the Must Farm quarry and supervised the recovery of the log boats is widely acclaimed as one of Britain’s leading prehistoric and wetland field archaeologists. He will be speaking on recent radiocrabon evidence and environmental evidence from Must Farm which is shining fresh light on the Bronze Age occupants of the Flag Fen Basin. This information is illuminating the magnitude and sophistication of the second millennium BC settlement, and the integral role of the River Nene as a communication corridor between Fenland and the rest of the world.

Tickets cost £5, £3 for concessions and Heritage Pass holders.
