Big Dig 1

We know from the Whittlesey Wheel, part of the internationally acclaimed find at Must Farm, that the Fens has a rich history. So it was a great pleasure to see a new generation being introduced to archaeology when I joined local group FenArch for their Big Dig Project in the grounds of Wisbech Museum.

People might say MPs have a habit of digging themselves into holes! On this occasion I was in the trench with my trowel for a higher purpose, helping local students scrap away the layers to reveal Fenland’s historic past.

It’s a great scheme and it was a pleasure to join FenArch who do a brilliant job under the guidance of Archaeology Project Services.
