A very early video of Dr Peter Reynolds in the Longbridge Deverell roundhouse at Butser Ancient Farm. Dr Reynolds founded the Butser Ancient Farm project in 1972 to investigate life in Iron Age Britain through experimental archaeology.

Butser Ancient Farm is a unique experimental archaeological site and a fascinating day out, nestled into the rolling South Downs National Park. The farm displays ongoing constructions of ancient buildings based on real sites, dating from the Stone Age through the Iron Age and Roman Britain, and finishing with the Anglo-Saxons. We also grow crops from prehistory and keep rare breeds of animals, including pigs, goats and sheep.

We have a full programme of special events including fantastic Celtic festivals and workshops, such as metallurgy, Iron Age cooking, bushcraft skills or felting. It’s a truly memorable family day out on the Hampshire/West Sussex border.
