Horton House is the culmination of nearly a year of painstaking work and sheer hard graft from the team at Butser Ancient Farm, just outside Clanfield.
Experimental archaeologist Claire Walton takes Shine Radio’s Kate Fairweather on a house tour. She explains the painstaking research and interpretative work in the planning , conceiving and construction of the “stone age” house.
Claire also explains why visitors emerging from the visitor centre on site are confronted with the thatched back, rather than the more decorative front of the house!
Horton House is just one of a number of exciting projects at Butser Ancient Farm. Among other projects are a bronze age dwelling, due to start construction shortly.
