Neolithic House



I was asked last year by East Sussex Archaeology and Museums Partnership, to provide a cut-away illustration of a Neolithic house based on known examples, of roughly square plans of postholes, with rounded corners. You can tell from this how little we have to go on when trying to understand the material culture of the past! Although I finished that some time ago a reconstruction is now underway which I'd like to think makes the illustration somewhat current again.
The building is being constructed for Moulsecoomb Primary School in Brighton, if you click on the link you can see how far they have got and what an amazing thing it is. The project should be finished in the Spring of 2011.
