About Butser Ancient Farm

Butser Ancient Farm is a unique experimental archaeology site nestled into the rolling countryside of the South Downs National Park; welcoming visitors and education groups throughout the year.  From it's origins as an Iron Age research site it has reconstructions of ancient buildings from the Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Roman Britain and the Anglo-Saxon period. The buildings are internationally famous and appear frequently in documentaries and feature films. Prehistory crops are also grown and rare breeds of animals, such as goats and sheep are kept.

Carers are admitted free of charge when accompanying a disabled visitor during standard opening hours. Butser Ancient Farm is a multi-sensory visitor experience, ideal for those with a variety of learning needs and styles. All the school activities and lecture tours are designed with accessibility in mind, please contact Butser Ancient Farm to discuss any particular requirements or concerns.
