From their sex lives and their politics to their religion, the clues available at the Must Farm dig are amazing:

It's stunning the detail of some of the artifacts being unearthed there.

Must Farm is just up the road from me, no more than 5 miles or so.

Yep it is very cool and has had very cool stuff coming out of it for quite a while. Some people may remember the boats from 3 years ago https://www.theguardian.com/science/2013/jun/04/eight-prehis...

It is under a mile away from Flag Fen which is Peterborough's other major Bronze Age site. More or less inbetween is Northey Island which is also an archeologically important Bronze Age site. Earlier excavations (in the 70s) had shown fairly widespread Bronze Age settlement about half a mile to the north of Flag Fen where the power station now stands.
