This site of international importance, formed by 55 oak timber posts completely encircling an upturned oak tree, has generated much public and media interest since its discovery was announced in January 1999. The beach on which it was found is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the wildlife that feeds and breeds there is of international importance.

To much local and national controversy, English Heritage decided that the best option for the future of the 4000 year-old timber circle at Holme-next-the-Sea in Norfolk was to record fully the site, then lift and analyse the upturned tree mark and circle of timber posts. The whole structure, lying on the shore line of the dynamic Norfolk coast, was at risk of being severely damaged by the sea and visitor pressure. Valuable information about the Bronze Age period would have been lost forever.

The timber posts were transferred to Flag Fen, near Peterborough, the archaeological centre based on the site of a unique Bronze Age religious complex. The laboratories at Flag Fen specialise in the study of prehistoric timber. The posts have been submerged in water tanks to prevent them from deterioration.

putting your bar-b-que pit in the ocean is no remedy for making it from wood.
