There is now a 'Fan site' for the Craggaunowen Project at http://www.craggaunowen.org/

I'm sure the creators would appreciate some hits and links to raise its ranking. ;)

Well, we didn't have a hand in that but we do plan to bring it forward some. They are great buildings but lack the 'lived in look'. We're proposing to level the floors, raise the fire bed and build furniture & other stuff.
Along the lines of this...http://www.castellhenllys.com/english/t ... inside.htm

Still its a great achievement with what ye have done mate. I'm curious about the celtic decoration inside the hut iself, and the the pigments used, it would be a good aspect of living history to explore, well that and I cant do any heavy lifting lol.

I wrote this last night but my internet sat down before I could post it:
'Ronseal'... decoration'... 'pigments' are we seeing the trend that got you the name?

As tempting as that may be Ronseal, (and we've discussed it) we're inclined to steer clear of such period definite stuff so we can use the Crannóg feature for different eras. The Craggaunowen literature makes the claim that Crannó���the Bronze Age. We're happy to play along with that a bit but are aware that some date as Iron Age but are well aware the majority are form the Early Christian era. Their model is very much an EC model. Keeping the fittings generic will allow us to go in as BA, IA or EC as needs require with us just changing costume, jewellery and vessels etc. to match. We'll keep the Ring Fort as purely EC.
We have no problem doing period specific projects just as long as they leave the features as mutable a canvas as possible.

At our Lughnasa even last year we did IA on the Crannóg�B�a�e�l�t�a and EC at the Fort, 16th Cen at the Tower House and 'Norman' on the green. We only do multi period by the features present but as their time line gaps out in places we have plans to develop a Mesolithic display to take in the arrival of man here (They have from Neolithic upwards with their dolmen). Also in development is something to bridge from the gap from the EC Ring Fort to the 16th Cen Tower house. We're looking at some easy to apply installation from 12th to 14th Cen on the green. Some form of mobile market or fair set-up perhaps. We're looking into stuff we can develop and store away on site rather than having to bring it in each time.
Basically I want a time line from 'Flint to Flint lock'.

Hi Martin, I know you're still plugging for a slot at the Cragg and perhaps the green space will be the venue for guest displays that aren't covered by the features on site. We like the idea of this area presenting different things per event. For now though we're still contending with our back log of ideas and a lack of cash.

Oww!....My 3 year old just whacked me in the knee with her wooden sword!

No Dave, I really mean I would love to sack the place, you know kill the women and rape the men and all. Actually no, I take that back, maybe I'm better off just imposing a small tax :D
