The Must Farm log boats have been transported to Flag Fen where they are undergoing conservation by a team of world-class experts to preserve them for future generations. These internationally important archaeological discoveries were found two miles to the east of Flag Fen, at a site near Whittlesey that was part of the same prehistoric landscape as Flag Fen 3,500 years ago.
Creative Good was appointed by Vivacity Peterborough in 2012 to help develop plans to house the boats at Flag Fen, in specially built refrigerated units, during their conservation.
Bradgate Park is Leicestershire’s largest Country Park and most popular visitor attraction, welcoming 900,000 visitors every year. The Park was the birthplace and early home of Lady Jane Grey – nine days Queen of England. An historic deer park, enclosed by the Normans as a hunting preserve before 1240, herds of Red and Fallow Deer still roam freely within the boundary walls.
John Martin, interpretation consultant and one of our regular collaborators, has been leading the interpretive development of the scheme and advising the client on wider issues of heritage interpretation across the Park. The project is supported by the Rotary Club of Leicester, to mark their centenary in 2016, and fundraising is ongoing.
