The first phase of the Prehistory Centre has been completed with the kind support of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The Mound Area and Accessibility Trail to create a mini Hilltop feel to the reconstructed settlement and enable visitors to access the new roundhouses all year around. The foundations have been laid for the Prehistory Centre with an operations portal for the shop, visitor reception and volunteer training area now in full use.
The Eastern Plateau and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development have continued to support the second phase of the Prehistory Centre. An insulated building of 25m x 20m, The Prehistory Centre will provide an indoor space to cater for larger groups with workshop areas and heritage interpretation.
Since August 2019, The Prehistory Centre has been an indoor venue for Flint Knapping demonstrations and Archery instruction.
In 2020, we have exciting plans to create a Prehistory Exhibition space with cave painting workshops and essential facilities such as toilets and heating.
