Flag Fen

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork

Flag Fen (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) by Kammer Taken 24th July 2002: This is the best shot I managed to get of the timbers that are on display at Flag Fen. The room that houses them is very dimly lit, and sprinklers run every few minutes to keep the timbers wet.

These timber are the remains of a wooden platform which dates back to circa 1300 BCE and is thought to have been used for ritual purposes. The platform was in use for about 400 years.
