As well as the amazing timber circle burning, I tried my hand at creating a demonstration Burnt Mound - it worked really well and I really enjoyed chatting to visitors to Brodick Country Park about how the Bronze Age folk heated water. We had lots of debates about what they would have used the hot water for. My favourite suggestion was from one wee boy who said "TORTURE!" We managed to boil and egg in the water & eat it ... Success!!
I felt privileged to have erected one of the timbers by hand...I didn't dig the hole though!
