Butser Ancient Farm was created 40 years ago as an open-air experimental archaeology and education site. World famous for it’s early experimental work, it continues to educate visitors and carry out research into different aspects of the past. The contructions of Iron-Age roundhouses, Neolithic buildings, part of a Roman villa and a Saxon house, form a wonderful backdrop to the technology area of the site which we will use for the metallurgy course.
The site also contains a modern visitor centre with gift shop and toilets. Teas & coffees will be provided throughout the course but you’ll need to organise your own lunch each day. It may be possible to organise a daily paid-for hot lunch if enough students are interested. Local shops and 2 major supermarkets are within a ten minute drive of the Farm for students wishing to buy their own lunch.
