In spring and summer 2014 there has been built a prehistoric house from the Bronze age in the prehistoric park of the Hunebedcentrum in Borger. The original remains were found during the excavations in the western part of the village Borger, called Daalkampen. The type of house plan is named Borger A, after its first finding in Borger.

The prehistoric house is used from July 2014 as an outdoor school class room, for education for the public and for workshops. In the future it is planned to use it for staff exchanges, experimental actions and to add more infrastructure, tools, pottery, interior and raw materials. For the Hunebedcentrum it is important to show the daily life in the Bronze age to all visitors. The main goal is to show that in this period the society changed in a more complex society with a difference in status and wealth.

The building was built by the company Archeo-Serwis under the guidance of the director Archeo-Serwis: Bert van Valburg and Hein Klompmaker, director Hunebedcentrum.
