West Stow Map

West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village in Suffolk has been reconstructed on the footprint of an excavated Anglo-Saxon village. There are a number of huts and houses which are archaeologists’ attempts to understand what may have been above ground, when all they have are a few post-holes and other stains in the ground. It is interesting to compare it with other reconstructions, such as those at Cosmeston Medieval Village and Butser Ancient Farm.

There is ample parking, a museum and a large tea room.
