'Excavations at the Must Farm Bronze Age settlement'

'Abstract: Excavations at the Must Farm Bronze Age settlement
Excavations by the Cambridge Archaeological Unit between 2015-16 uncovered the remains of a fantastically well-preserved Bronze Age settlement, built on piles over a river channel. Since then, archaeologists and specialists have been busy examining the wealth of material and data collected, a process that has revealed incredible insights into the history of this fascinating Fenland site dating to almost 3,000 years ago. This talk describes the experience working with such incredible archaeology and some of the stories emerging from our research.
