    Volunteers are on site at La Hougue Bie every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday morning lighting a fire inside the Longhouse – the smoke prevents insect infestations in the thatch roof.  If you visit La Hougue Bie on these mornings (10am to 1pm), the Neolithic Longhouse volunteers will be more than happy to show you around the replica Longhouse that they have built and now maintain. They are understandably proud of their achievement and they will explain the background of this wonderful project.

    Take a tour of the Longhouse with Longhouse volunteer Paul Lister on Wednesdays.  Paul will take you inside the Longhouse and talk about Neolithic life between 11am to 1pm and 1.30pm to 4.30pm
