Avalon Marshes (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork)

Avalon Marshes Centre Development

The Avalon Archaeology ‘Hands on Heritage’ project

The Avalon Archaeology ‘Hands on Heritage’ project celebrates the natural landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Somerset Levels through 60 different projects.

Over the next three years the project team, alongside volunteers, will construct a series of archaeological reconstructions to be housed at the new Avalon Marshes Centre near Westhay.

This year we will be building a stone-walled, Roman period structure with underfloor heating. In 2014 we aim to put up a timber-framed Saxon Longhall and the following year we hope to construct an Iron Age Roundhouse.

Alongside these structures our team will also experiment with prehistoric trackways, dugout canoes and furnishings to make the buildings come alive.

If you would like to learn ancient skills and get involved with these exciting and unique projects, take a look at the Get Involved page.

Glastonbury Lake Village (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork)

Glastonbury Lake Village on UTube

The film documents a small research excavation carried out at Glastonbury Lake Village in 2014.

The site is the best-preserved prehistoric settlement ever discovered in the UK.

Waterlogged peat ensured the incredible preservation of Iron Age wooden structures.

West Kennett (Long Barrow)

Equinox Sunbeams in WKLB

Twice yearly, around the time of the Spring and Autumn Equinoxes, the rising sun sends a ray of light into this 5,650 year-old monument.

The spectacle is visible for a week or more either side of the actual Equinox and the light takes a slightly different course through the barrow each day.

Clear sunrises are not common: this was the only one of September 2013.
