The Prehistoric Trackways

The Somerset Levels are famous for their prehistoric trackways which criss-cross the wetlands. The exceptional preservation of the organic materials allow archaeologists to gain an insight into the environment, the woodland management and the construction techniques of our ancestors, who populated the marshes over 2000 years ago.

Through this project we aim to replicate a number of these structures to give those visiting the area a real sense of how people in the past navigated this waterlogged landscape.

A stunning 3D visualisation of the Sweet Track and its landscape has been developed in partnership with Archeritage and can be seen here
