Butser Ancient Farm?is a unique experimental archaeology site nestled into the rolling countryside of the South Downs National Park. The?farm features archaeological?reconstructions of ancient buildings from the Stone Age, Iron Age, Roman Britain?and the Anglo-Saxon?period. Our buildings are internationally famous and appear frequently in documentaries and feature films. We also grow crops from prehistory and keep rare breeds of animals, such as goats and sheep.
We specialise in?school visits?and 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. To keep up with what?s going on?check out the?Butser blog?for updates!
