Enjoy one last chance over Easter to travel back to the Bronze Age with a group of living historians and learn how to cook, work and live as our ancient ancestors did over 3,000 years ago.

Flag Fen are today (Monday, April 6) inviting visitors to peek around its Bronze Age roundhouse.

Try your hand at various traditional skills with demonstrations and have-a-go sessions and dig for ancient artefacts in the family-friendly replica archaeological dig tent.

Also, find out about other events going on in 1,000BC around the world such as life on the other side of Europe in this period by meeting an Ancient Greek warrior.

The sessions today run from 10am-5pm with the last admission at 4pm.

Flag Fen is located at The Droveway, Northey Road, Peterborough.

Booking is not necessary.

Tickets cost £7 for adults, £5 for children and concessions and £18 for families.
