Round House construction

The most common type of Celtic dwelling was a round hut made from a frame of wood with walls of a mixture of mud, dung and branches; and covered with a conical roof made from thatch. There were many variations and sizes that ranged from small family sized buildings to huge multi-level buildings that had spaces for the livestock underneath with the living accommodation above.
