    We visited an amazing centre of experimental archaeology here in the UK at the Butser Ancient Farm where the study into the way ancient peoples lived and constructed their homes helps to inform on the many excavations carried out here and elsewhere.

    Excellent! I will have to give it a visit.

    Funnily enough, I’ve been driving between London and Portsmouth a few times a year for decades. I’ve seen the sign for Butser and often wondered what it was all about. Somehow, though, never quite get round to actually doing anything about it!

    That is quite a bit of the history of early architecture there! Thank you for posting that. I learned a lot.

    I’ve known of Butser since being an undergraduate archaeologist, but I’m ashamed to say I’ve never been! Thanks for the photos!

    My sister & I got my Dad a ‘make you own sword’ day there last year (or maybe the year before …)  Anyway, he got to make his own bronze sword & absolutely loved it.

    Great place, thoroughly recommended
