Cash boost for archaeology unit
The ancient timber circle found off the coast of Norfolk
An archaeological unit that worked for a time on the Seahenge discovery is to receive cash from a good causes fund.

Flag Fen at Peterborough is to receive 10,000 from the Peter Boizot Foundation, set up in 1996.

The unit is aiming to build a 500,000 archaeological resource centre at the Flag Fen bronze age site.

Fundraising officer for Flag Fen Sharon Shortland said: "The new centre will enable archaeologists to analyse material excavated at the site."

Peter Boizot, a businessman from the city and former Peterborough football club chairman, gave the money to help fund the construction of a purpose-built archaeological facility for the Fens and East Anglian coastal area.

The Seahenge timbers are now being worked on at the Mary Rose Trust in Portsmouth.
