Funding crisis could cost Flag Fen its future
I had to join the fed to reply just to this feed!! it's such a shame, and would be a complete injustice if they had to close Flag Fen. I was lucky enough to do some digging there over a couple of seasons, and the whole experience was amazing. I had a blast with all the excavation crew, who were patient and genuinely cared about the profession, and the continuation of the profession. The excavation team was always made up of people who WANTED to be doing the job, and who had time to teach you the basics in a practical and USEFUL manner- unlike my experience at uni, which i would've quit had it NOT been for my experiences at Flag Fen!! every time i'm back in Peterboro' i vist the site, and, it's true, it's not AS interactive as it once was- the museum exhibitions have been scaled back dramatically... not sure if it's a temporary or permanent thing, but the roundhouses will always remind me of the mis-spent summers there. Really would be a shame if they had to close..
