Alex, Chris and Pauline have been working on a project to reconstruct an Iron Age roundhouse based upon an example from within Lincolnshire. We
are really only at the very beginning stages of the project, we’ve got drawings, a plot of land cleared and are in the process of gathering materials, but nothing standing
So through the website we thought that we’d let people keep an eye out on the project as it goes along, it may fail or it may finish brilliantly, at this stage its
difficult to tell how this will go.
The aim of the project is to learn more about how people once lived in this country thousands of years ago and to test assumptions
based upon how these houses would have been constructed. Experimental archaeology at it’s finest... ok I might be over stating that part, but this is an experiment to test
out how practical it would have been to construct a roundhouse and to let everyone know our results.
Chris and Nick will video the project as it unfolds. More on
this at a later date.
Keep an eye out in here and the WAG News page to see what’s going. If you have any questions, would like to
join in, have materials that would help the project, head on into the forum and get chatting with us we’re
more than happy to chat.
