Substructure to Superstructure
This paper considers briefly the implications of stake-holes and post-holes with special reference to their structural and constructional qualities, and those factors which may affect their archaeological form. the case studies of two specific reconstructions of Iron Age round-houses are presented. The first is a post- and stake-built structure based on an excavation at Pimperne Down, Dorest. The second is a stone-built structure based on the excavation of Conderton Camp on Bredon Hill, Wors. In both studies, emphasis is placed on the problems of evaluating archaeological data, and the implications of those data in terms of material resources and the potential of woodland management as an integral element of the pre-historic agricultural economy.
