What is archaeology and how do archaeologists find out about the past? In this talk, Chris Wakefield of the Cambridge Archaeological Unit, explains what it’s like to be an archaeologist and shares the story of one of the most exciting prehistoric sites ever found in the UK. Must Farm, a Bronze Age village built on stilts over a river, is helping archaeologists to understand how people were living in the Cambridgeshire Fens almost 3,000-years-ago. Hear about pottery, posts, and even poo, and find out how the objects left behind can tell us about the lives of past people.
