Click all pictures to see full size.
Several years ago on Bernera locals started to see the uncovering of some stones high up in the dunes each year after the winter storms. In 1996 a iron age house dwelling was uncovered and excivated by professional archeologists
After the origional site ( which is still in place today) had been recorded and exivated a replica house was built using the same plan as the exivated houses. The replica house was built using local stones many of them coming from an old house which was on the Harsgeir Vew cottage croft
Bosta Iron Age house as it is today - open in summer for visitors very authentic with a warden inside to tell you all about the site and the people that lived there.
