Considered to be one of the most important Bronze Age sites in Europe, excavations at Must Farm in Whittlesey have revealed more about what life was really like for our ancestors living 3,000 years ago than ever before. Following on from the myriad of news articles and BBC documentaries, this exhibition presents finds that never been on public display and highlights the stories that have captured our imaginations.

LHEN - New Toolkit documents
As part of the expanding range of advice and guidance produced by the CBA to enhance local advocacy capabilities, the Local Heritage Engagement Network have produced two new documents for their toolkit (
Toolkit 9: Local Authority cuts: Case studies - This document contains information on the types of cuts which many local authorities are making to their heritage services, and how to formulate arguments against them or propose alternate options.
Toolkit 10: Getting involved with Neighbourhood Planning: Advice for the historic environment - This document seeks to fill a gap in available advice specifically about incorporating historic environment policies into neighbourhood plans and how individuals and groups with an interest in archaeology or heritage can get involved in the process.

Forthcoming toolkits will examine examples of a range of good advocacy projects and good local services. If you have any suggestions or examples of positive advocacy in practice and would like to be featured, please contact LHEN at
