At La Hougue Bie you will discover traces of life in Jersey from Neolithic times to the German Occupation of World War II.The Neolithic passage grave is one of the 10 oldest buildings in the world (4000–3500 BC). Its ancient chamber was once a sacred space for rituals and ceremonies and was built to align with the rising sun at spring and summer equinox. On top of the prehistoric La Hougue Bie mound is a 16th–century Christian chapel with spectacular views.
The exhibition, ‘Searching for Jersey’s Celts’ is a story about the Le Câtillon II – the world’s largest Celtic coin hoard. You’ll explore what might have led people to bury a hoard of 70,000 coins and jewellery in Jersey 2,000 years ago.
On site is replica Neolithic Longhouse where you can talk to our volunteers about life in the New Stone Age. You can also visit a German command bunker from World War II and follow the story of forced workers brought to Jersey by Organisation Todt.
