In 2012 English Heritage approached the ATC to supervise a project to build some reconstructed houses based on evidence uncovered at Durrington Walls, during the Stonehenge Riverside Project (2003-2009), where the remains of seven late Neolithic houses were found. These are thought to be part of a much larger settlement dated to the middle of the third millennium BC.
In order to recreate the buildings English Heritage recruited a team of volunteers to work alongside ATC staff.
The Neolithic Houses Project consisted of two phases. The first phase (2013) was to construct prototype houses at Old Sarum, near Salisbury. The second phase (2014) was to construct five further houses to form part of an out-door gallery at the new Stonehenge Visitor Centre.
The phase two houses were slightly adapted versions of the prototypes to allow for access issues for one million visitors annually.
