Glastonbury Lake Village was an iron age village on the Somerset Levels near Godney, some 3 miles (5 km) north west of Glastonbury, Somerset, England. It has been designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument and covers an area of 400 feet (122 m) north to south by 300 feet (91 m) east to west. The village was built in about 300BC and occupied into the early Roman period (around 100AD) when it was abandoned, possibly due to a rise in the water level. It was built on a morass on an artificial foundation of timber filled with brushwood, bracken, rubble and clay. The village housed around 100 people in five to seven groups of houses, each for an extended family, with sheds and barns, made of hazel and willow covered with reeds, and surrounded either permanently or at certain times by a wooden palisade. At its maximum it may have had 15 houses with a population of up to 200 people. Exhibits are on display at the Glastonbury Lake Village Museum at The Tribunal in Glastonbury.
