Flag Fen Lives – Day 6 & 7

Our first dig for a weekend…

Somebody somewhere mentioned that there could well be a major sporting event taking place, but we wouldn’t know it.

Once again, Flag Fen worked its weekend magic.

Pub quiz in the round house, International Bog Day, the archaeology of archaeologists, Mike Heyworth as our DVIP – and an army of weekend reinforcements to swell our trowelling ranks.
