|Description ||Don't get distracted by the cute calves, there's a lot to see in this photo. In the foreground: the inner rampart at the southern end of the hillfort. The ground to the left of the rampart has been scooped out to build up the bank. Beyond is the multiplicity of banks and ditches at the south-eastern corner of the hillfort, which doesn't have the natural protection of steep slopes. Even the inner rampart has been built extra tall. Top right is the summit of the hill, site of the neolithic enclosure that pre-dates the Iron Age hillfort. The slight earthwork remains of the enclosure can just about be seen in the field. |
