CAN you dig it? Yes, you can – at Flag Fen near Peterborough.

To celebrate the first archaeological dig at the internationally-renowned site for 10 years, The Hunts Post has teamed up with Vivacity, the organisation that manages the landmark, to offer two family tickets and two summer school places.

The groundbreaking scheme to re-evaluate the Bronze Age site will see people digging alongside professional archaeologists for the first time.

The dig will take place over three weeks at Flag Fen, the site of a 3,500-year-old wooden causeway, much of which is still buried.

People aged 17 and over will have the chance to take part in the dig for a day, weekend or even the whole three weeks, from July 23 to August 12 with archaeologists including presenters from the popular Time Team programme.

A summer school, from July 23 to August 3, will ensure children aged eight to 12 don't miss out. They will dig in special test pits and will get up close to the real excavation and meet the professionals.

For families visiting Flag Fen during the three-week scheme there will be daily tours and sessions covering Bronze Age brewing, prehistoric cooking, bronze casting and flint-knapping, as well as a chance to catch up with the experts on the dig.

The event is being organised by Dig Ventures in conjunction with Vivacity.
