Abstract: At the Glastonbury Lake Village site there are two quite distinct occupations by two groups of people with different ideas on house construction and with differences in their cultures as defined by the objects found. The first people on the site built, mainly in oak, timber framed houses of square or rectangular form. The second people destroyed the earlier houses and made artificial mounds of timber, brushwood and clay and on these set up round huts. The occupation ended with a quiet abandonment of the site: there was no terminal massacre and no destruction by fire.
