Hound Tor deserted medieval settlement, Dartmoor, Devon, UK.
This settlement at Hound Tor was occupied from the 13th - early 15th centurys, an increase in population and favorable climatic conditions led to people living on and farming the marginal land of the moors. The farmers lived in structures called longhouses where the people lived at one end and the animals were kept at the other. Other smaller structures on the site may also have been dwellings or possibly barns, three of the small strutures contained corn dryers.
This site was excavated in the 1960s and 1970s, today the site is in the care of English Heritage and the Dartmoor National Park Authority.
