Butser Ancient Farm, Waterlooville, Hants http://www.butserancientfarm.co.uk

“Butser Ancient Farm is an unusual place because it is neither a historic site nor a museum, it is a real working farm. But, this farm is very different to any other in the late 20th century and early 21st century.
It is the only place in western Europe where prehistoric livestock, cereals and other plants are presented, along with fields and fences, Iron Age Houses and other buildings, now extended to include a Roman Villa based on an excavation in Hampshire .
Butser Ancient Farm is really an open air research laboratory where the ancient world of the Celts and Romans is being explored. Based on evidence from archaeological excavations of prehistoric sites in Britain and the rest of north-west Europe, the work undertaken is an attempt to find out more about the agricultural and domestic life of the Celtic Iron Age.”
