Brodick volunteers find a roundabout way to Scotland’s Bronze Age

roundhouseb37nts01As reported in the Banner on Saturday 28 July, volunteers from Arran and the mainland came together to help build a replica Bronze Age roundhouse in Brodick Country Park.

In just six days the volunteers achieved an incredible amount and were able to assemble the wooden skeleton of a roundhouse, which was once a common type of dwelling across the country over 4,000 years ago.

The roundhouse, located on the park’s Wilma’s Walk, is part of the Arran Archaeology Project, a two-year joint venture between Arran Arts Resource and the National Trust for Scotland Ranger Service.
