The buildings were on a hillside a little way down from the castle, and overlooking a field of happy outdoor pigs:
The buildings were based on three of the late Neolithic houses excavated at Durrington Walls near Stonehenge and constructed by a group of volunteers and experimental archaeologists over a six week period, using a variety of technique in order to establish which worked.

The smaller of the two skins on which the tools were laid out had previously belonged to Alfie the goat who had been very friendly and very tasty, as well as possessing enough brains to tan his own hide. Naturally the hide had been prepared prior to tanning using flint tools.
