We’ve got a bit of a thing for hillforts at the moment. Maybe it’s because we’re about to go dig one near Bristol. Maybe it’s because we just got back from Coast of the Hillforts (Costa dos Castros) – a region of northwest Spain that gets its name from, you’ve guessed it, the totally spectacular hillforts that line its shores. In fact, it’s so densely packed with these massive Iron Age constructions that the people who live there asked us to help them crowdfund work to investigate, conserve and promote the incredible archaeology on their land.
While we were there, we fell in love with a series of roundhouses they’d uncovered inside one of the hillforts, and even more so with a reconstructed one they’d built together over the summer. We wanted one so badly we copied down their instructions on how to build one… So if you fancy having a roundhouse for a shed, here they are, and they’re based on REAL archaeological evidence!
