Yellow flag Iris FlowerSigning off our first trench, and some molten metal…

Ben and Kristina from Birmingham come back for a visit, because they missed us and, let’s face it – someone had to beast through the last bit on Test Pit 1.

Thanks to them, it’s our first trench signed off! Experimental archaeology comes to Flag Fen with a special visit from Neil Burridge, demonstrating the magic of Bronze casting, and how easy it is (!!) to make some lovely rings.
