Archaeology excavation, building survey, scientific dating has established that peasant houses in much of Britain had a durability that was probably exceptional in late medieval Europe. Peasant houses in late medieval England and Wales Scotland and Ireland were more complex were not self-built homes but professionally made by craftsmen, and a central aspect of material culture. Building the late medieval peasant house was an aspect of consumption that entailed important choices relating to expenditure, construction, and, above all, the plan that structured household life. The widespread adoption by peasants of the hierarchical hall-house plan was in part an appropriation of high-status housing culture and inseparable from the construction and maintenance of free peasant social identity. The eventual rejection of the hall-house in the sixteenth century ended a peasant building tradition that had begun in the thirteenth century and matured during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.

The ever increasing database of sites dated through dendrochronology mostly medieval and post-medieval buildings in Britain has meant that any new assemblage of oak timbers from those periods has a much higher potential for dating than it did a couple of decades ago, and the information gained has had a great impact on vernacular architectural history, with dates being assigned to well over two and a half thousand building phases throughout the area.
This itself has led to more consideration of determining where the source trees may have grown dendroprovenancing. Other areas of study have also been growing rapidly throughout this period: the investigation of imported oak timbers, and the parallel study of imported softwoods, and attempts to date elm, the second most important building timber in historic buildings.
These have all contributed extensively to our understanding of the historic environment.

So I turned up at Plas Newydd for the start of our tour at the Godly hour of am. So good was the job description that I have since used it on my twitter account. According to early guide books produced by Plas Newydd, Humphry Repton the landscape artist had noted the cromlech as belonging to the Druids and it had been his intention to leave a marble plaque by the stones explaining the history of the stones.
This was during the ‘s so it was well before anybody realised that the Druids came almost 3, years later, but it does suggest that the cromlech was there originally and that it’s not a folly constructed by Repton for the Bayly family. If you visit sites such as Carneddau Hengwm in Ardudwy both monuments up there are covered by stone cairns but the obvious examples on Mon such as Bodowyr have long been denuded probably by agricultural activity over the centuries. Later in the day we visit Bryn Celli Ddu and Barclodiad y Gawres both of which have reconstructed mounds.
There is some debate as to how much of a cromlech was covered and when the may have been covered or closed – we certainly had an on-going debate throughout the day. Again it has to be about asking questions.
