Flag Fen Lives – Final Day

Rounding off the final day of our three week excavation, its tools down… and glasses up!

Archaeology in your hands’ is our moto – and without your helping hands, either in the trenches or watching from afar – this project would never have happened.

This has been, without doubt, the most exhilarating three weeks of our lives, and from all the team here we wish you all our deepest heartfelt thanks.

As the sun sets slowly in the west, we bid you a fine farewell. 

Now, did someone mention an End of Site Party…
