Public to excavate deep: Flag fen archaeology idea


Famous Bronze Age archaeological site Flag Fen in Cambridge shire will host a first-of-its-kind dig that makes the public essential to the development. Lisa Westcott Wilkins, managing director of Dig ventures, the firm behind the new project the only place in Europe where you can see this kind of archaeology exposed.



Mrs.Wilkins explained that Most of the archaeology outside of universities happens in advance of infrastructure or building, so when the market for that slows down, we don't get to dig very much. The team at Dig ventures chose ensign Fen as its flagship site to try a new kind of archaeology, next to a hard global economic climate.
