this prehistoric landscape at kings mead near heathrow compresses over 12,000 years of human history, and contains neolithic buildings and a barrow, early bronze age ring ditches and a neaker burial, two later bronze age farmsteads, an iron age settlement, and a romano-british farmstead. this early neolithic house was discovered in 2012. Measuring 15m by 17.5m, the outline of its walls is displayed by the course of foundation gullies. leaf-shaped arrowhead and small fragments of plain bowl ware were found at the house helped dating. these houses have been associated with the neolithic long barrow tradition often echoing their trapezoid shape and believed to have developed out of covering the houses after they have fallen out of use. this type of early neolithic house signals the dawn of farming in this country. these date to around 3800-3600 BC, pre-dating the earliest causewayed enclosures and ranging in length from a modest 6m to over 20m (in scotland). most of these houses were built of timber, leaving little more than a cluster of post-holes to mark their presence. photo gareth chaffey. #neolithic #neolithichouse #timberhouses #earlyneolithic #farming
