Howick House is a replica of a BC house which was excavated from a nearby cliff-top site in Northumberland. It was discovered in 1983 by amateur archaeologist John Davies by the identification of flint artefacts in the eroding cliffs.
This is an early Iron Age reconstruction based on excavations of a crannog (meaning young tree). A crannog is a lake-dwelling on which people built houses, kept animals, and lived in relative security from invaders.
Reconstructed Neolithic Houses at Stonehenge, furnished and equipped with replica objects. Goatskin cloak, quiver and nettle and linen tunics hung against the wall were made by Sally Pointer & Gareth Riseborough
