Anybody who has an interest in the major prehistoric archaeological sites of Britain should read this book, because Flag Fen (located near Peterborough) is a fascinating and intriguing site. It is a monumental Bronze Age structure, constructed over 3000 years ago using more than 60,000 timbers (preserved under the surface wetlands), and is believed to have been part of a site that was of ritual significance to the prehistoric population.

In this inexpensive concise guide Francis Pryor (the archaeologist who discovered the site) has produced a study that is of value to those with a professional interest in the subject, but is also interesting and easy to read for the general public. Pryor outlines the discovery of the site, methods of excavation, layout, significant finds, and possible interpretations of the site.

Those who are interested in visiting the site, will also be able to see reconstructions of Bronze and Iron Age Roundhouses, that illustrate the way local people lived in those eras.

Francis show us, in a clear and illuminating way, how the Bronze Age sites around Fengate/Whittlesey area develop over the centuries.

A compelling read, it gives us an interesting insight to how our Ancestors lived.
