This is a replica of an ancient lake dwelling, it’s boundaries made of high wooden fencing. The Craggaunowen Project in County Clare, Ireland, gives us a wonderful insight into how the Celts made their homes on a Crannog, which means ‘young tree’.
It’s an artificial island on which people constructed thatched houses of mud and wattle, kept animals, and lived in relative security from enemy clans and invaders. In Ireland, Crannogs were used during the Iron Age and early Christian periods. Some were inhabited during the Late Bronze Age and even occupied as late as the 17th century.
