Tiny Homes Of The Ancient World: Celtic Iron Age Roundhouses

In this pilot episode of our Tiny Homes Of The Ancient World series, we travel 2000 years back in time to the Celtic iron-age fort and roundhouses 0f Castell Henllys. So far on Living Big in a Tiny House, we have explored tiny homes and downsized architecture from all over the world. In this new series, we aim to reach far back into our historic and prehistoric past to explore the tiny homes of the ancient world.

This first episode takes us to Castell Henllys, An Iron Age Fort in Pembrokeshire, Wales. Built approximately 2000 years ago, these impressive roundhouses have been recently reconstructed based on archeological evidence.

  2. This is soooo great. I really love your content. The quality, sound, camera work, your interview style. Everything really. The informative side of it. And I really like how you changed your music with it. My father loves all things celtic, so I really have to translate him this one. Thank your for your content. Much appreciated. 🙂

  3. Absolutely fantastic vid, and the guide was an absolute gem with a natural talent to entertain and inform. Please tell me you stopped by to see Kris Harbour while you were in the area!

  4. What a treat to listen to her speak about the homes. In our modern day society, we often forget that communities would often live together, making sure everyone is clothes and fed.

  5. Did not see this one coming !! Interesting 🤔! But somehow my granny’s home I. Africa was Quite summer not sunken into the ground but totally the same !! Uuugh !! Is gran!!

  6. That was AMAZING!!!!! Thanks so much for this one, Bryce! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things historical, especially this kind of historical thing! I really enjoyed this episode… but, then again, I enjoy EVERY episode on your channel! Thanks heaps again, Bryce and Rasa! <3

  7. I was waiting for this yesterday and i thought ‘I think they ran out of content 😭😭’
    The COVID needs to calm down asap!!
    The intro was amazing great work as always 👏👏👏

  8. This was such an interesting video! I’m so happy you explored some of Wales on your travels, I’m Welsh so this is really fascinating.

    Did you travel to North Wales at all? There is a place in Mid/North Wales that teach courses on how to build tiny houses, I was booked onto a course which was unfortunately cancelled due to the pandemic but it’d be so cool to see if you visited anywhere like that!

  9. I was fascinated with this episode and thought “This is a change for the channel”. I then remembered that your whole channel is exploring alternate living lifestyles and innovations past and present. Homes are a big part of it, but the home set up is a look at the people . Each one tells a story and im thankful that you are bringing them to us.

    Also, I love the rework of the intro theme.
