Flag Fen, east of Peterborough, England, is a Bronze Age site comprising over 60,000 timbers, arranged in five very long rows, creating a wooden causeway, (around 1 km long), across the wet fenland. Part way across the structure, a small island was formed, where it is presumed religious ceremonies occurred. Archaeological work began at the site, which is located 800m (0.5 miles) east of Fengate, in 1982.
