Previous excavations at Must Farm unearthed a wonderfully intact prehistoric landscape preserved by the fenland deposits. The current excavation aims to increase our understanding and creating a much broader, hopefully more accurate, picture of domestic life in the Bronze Age. This is made possible thanks to an unfortunate accident (maybe) which led to the catastrophic destruction of a settlement in use preserving an intact snap shot of life of the inhabitants. The talk will bring you up-to-date on the excavations which have been ongoing since September and discuss some of the working theories of the excavation team about what they are finding and how these discoveries help embellish the picture of Bronze Age life. The excavation is being undertaken by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit, funded by Historic England and Forterra.
