Celtic farmstead in North Wales, dating to the 3rd century AD. The family is preparing for the winter: you can see smoke rising from chimney holes as women cure meat, men carrying pigs that will be fattened for slaughter, a man winnowing wheat and barley (throwing it up into the air to get rid of the chaff, the part you can't eat), a small hut to store logs for winter fires, and men fixing a barn for storing hay for the cattle.
