Beeston roundhouse

People have lived and worked at Beeston since prehistoric times. But look around the site today, and little visible evidence remains of the site’s early origins.

We want to help bring Beeston’s Bronze Age past to life. So this spring we start work building a new roundhouse at the site, revealing how people may have lived up to 3,000 years ago.
