Iron Age Fort

Beautiful Pembrokeshire in South East Wales. A long time ago archeologists discovered traces of an Iron Age hill fort, and then someone came up with an excellent idea to experiment. On the original foundations reconstructed were 4 roundhouses and a granary. Castell Henllys is a Welsh return to the past.

Obviously, the houses have been reconstructed inside, as well:

Some tools are exposed outside:

The buildings are on top of the hill:

The livestock here is a nice surprise. The animals are quite contemporary 🙂 and are kept in pens at the bottom of the hill, where probably animals were kept during the existence of the fort (over 2,000 years ago!).

Castell Henllys is used also as a training site for young archeologists in the summer:

Castell Henllys is an open-air museum, where you can breathe in prehistory…
