Butser Ancient Farm

Nestled in a rural part of the South Downs National Park, yet easily accessible on a A3 (London to Portsmouth), Butser Ancient Farm has distinct historic area's of reconstructed houses including Stone Age, Iron Age Roundhouses and a Roman Villa. A Saxon longhouse will be constructed in 2015. The 7 acre site is on a grassy field, with wattle fences, hedges, countryside views and woodland in the background. All the buildings have been constructed with archaeological evidence in mind, using natural materials. They are as authentic as they can be. There are also some ancient breeds of animals (presently pigs, sheep, goats and hens), some ancient crops (spelt wheat and beans) and an extensive metal working area. We can provide a range of tools and equipment to complement the surroundings and experts in fields such as experimental archaeology, metal working and ancient cookery. We also run ancient festivals throughout the year, such as Beltain with a huge Burning Wickerman and can provide re-enactment people such as Roman Gladiators and Celtic living.
We have a large free car park, good facilities within our new eco-friendly visitor centre and can be flexible.
