"In the middle Iron Age, the layout of the interior of the hillfort was reorganised. Once randomly arranged houses were now built in regimented rows, with traffic guided along roads. This reorganisation suggests some control existed over social life within the fort.
Later in the Iron Age, this organised system broke down, and the focus of the settlement became once again, the eastern end of the hillfort. At this time, there was increasing trade with the continent, and specialised industries such as metalworking were becoming very important at the site."
