 Record Name Imaginative reconstruction of a roundhouse at Hagg Site 103
 Record Description An imaginative reconstruction of one of the circular structures revealed during SWAAG's excavation at Hagg Site 103 in June 2012, drawn by the second-youngest member of the team. Note how Tamsin has incorporated research suggesting that hearth-smoke percolated through the thatch, helping to keep it dry and fumigated, rather than through a central hole perfectly placed to douse any fire during typical Pennine weather.
