    Year 4 Visit to Flag Fen

    Year 4 enjoyed a visit to Flag Fen on Monday 18th September, the location of some of the most significant Bronze Age archaeology in Europe.  The site guides began by putting the Bronze Age into context, using a long rope and some fabulous props including a Bronze Age axe to explain where Flag Fen and its people fit into the history of the world. Pupils examined a range of artefacts including wode, a bone needle and some iron ore.  A highlight of the visit was a chance to be experimental archaeologists and make Bronze Age clay pots.  The children also visited the site museum, learnt about medicinal uses for local plants and viewed the unique boats kept in fridges. The day ended with a magical story in a replica roundhouse.
