Celtic Village

Three reconstructed round-houses dwellings are based on the excavated remains of actual Iron Age buildings.

The stone-walled house is based on one found at Conderton, Warwickshire; the first wattle-walled house on one from the hillfort of Moel-y-gaer, Clwyd; and the large house with its roof supported on posts on remains excavated at Moel-y-gerddi, Gwynedd.

All three are roofed with straw and the site is defended by a palisade and ditch.

Inside the houses are weaving looms, fire-dogs, corn querns and other everyday utensils of the period.
