We started the week by exploring the history of the fens, and how the area has changed over time with a number of videos .
This was followed by some of the stories associated with the fens, most notable of which was the story of Hereward the Wake. Hereward's story was also told in a Horrible Histories episode, and Horrible Histories has quickly become the children's programme of choice.
