Wooden turret

"Educational but uninspirational picture."
"Good for the kids to see what it would have looked like."
"Thought for some reason it would be all stone in real life."
"Interesting but not worth taking a photo. We're happy looking at the remains."
"Informative and stimulates the imagination. I want to get an idea of how people lived here."
"This sort of reconstruction helps the imagination although I didn't bother to take a picture home."
"Reconstructive archaeology - not always perfect but gives insight if in the right location & if done sensitively."
