Reconstruction of the Biskupin Houses

Author(s): Peter J. Reynolds

Year: 1983


There is little doubt but that Biskupin represents one of the most fascinating archaeological discoveries of this century. Claimed to be the Pompeii of the north, while it does not exactly compete, there is a great degree of truth in the claim that to date it supplies vastly more insight into an early iron Age occupation site than virtually any other. That this is the case, particularly for the structures, is discussed in this contribution.
