Flag Fen Archaeology Park is home to a unique ancient wooden monument; a kilometre long wooden causeway and platform,
perfectly preserved in the wetland.  3500 years ago this was built and used by the Celtic fen people as a place of worship and ritual.
60,000 upright timbers and 250,000 horizontal planks are buried under the ground along with many swords and personal items.
