Abstract

Crannogs, artificial island settlements built of stone and timber in lakes, are a feature of Scotland and Ireland from later prehistoric times to the medieval period. They have been absent from England and Wales until the recognition that is reported here of the Llangorse site–known and puzzling for a century–as a first Welsh crannog, and a special one.
