Examine the outlines of two successive halls built on the same spot 6,000 years ago at this complex site.
The remains of buildings at Doon Hill were first identified through aerial photography. Excavations have revealed two successive timber halls and other enclosures. Nothing survives above ground today, but the outlines of the structures are marked out in coloured concrete in the grass.
The structural remains of Doon Hill were originally thought to date to the AD 500s and 600s. But further research and radiocarbon dating now show that both halls are much older, dating to the Neolithic period.
