Flag Fen Lives – Day 17

Lets hear it for low energy mornings…

What are the connections between Flag Fen and ‘Europe’s Lost World?’

We found out when Vice Gaffney paid us a visit as part of our DVIP lecture programme – and the results were awe inspiring! We’ve filmed all of these lectures, and will be releasing these over the coming year – so watch this space!

Today we catch up with Mr Wet Wood (Ian Panter), find butchery marks on our animal bones, and finally get to the bottom of the Digging Bag enigma… or do we?
