Large Wattle and Daub Round House, 2004

Large Wattle and Daub Round House, 2004
Celtic Village, St Fagans

Recreated in 1992, the village at the Museum of Welsh Life features three roundhouses identical those occupied by our Iron Age ancestors.

The round dwellings are reconstructions based on the excavated remains of actual buildings.

The stone-walled house is based on one found at Conderton, Worcestershire; the first wattle-walled house on one from the hillfort of Moel-y-Gaer, Flintshire; 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 you can see weaving looms, fire-dogs, corn querns and other everyday utensils of the Celts.

Experimental work in the growing of Iron-Age crops and rearing of animals also takes place here.
