A model Crannog made by my daughter for her school history project. Photography by me, with a little bit of help in design, sourcing materials, construction, health and safety……etc. etc.

Crannogs were round houses built on small artificial islands in the lakes of Ireland and Scotland from the Mesolithic to the Early Medieval period. They were constructed on wooden poles inserted in the lake bed. The name is derived from the Irish word crann, meaning a tree.
