Dating and researching Glastonbury Lake Village: Final results from the recent excavations

The recent excavations at the lake village site have allowed an investigation of the heart of the settlement for the first time since 1907. The results have changed our view of how the roundhouses were made and given an enhanced understanding of the site construction. We now know how much archaeology is left on the site and where it is in relation to the water table. Most significantly the excavations have allowed a thorough scientific dating programme to be undertaken. The results will revolutionise our understanding of the dating of the settlement, and will have significant implications for Iron Age dating.
