Abstract


The excavation was restricted to determining the structure of the ramparts in\r\nthe threatened area and their relations to one another and to the hut-circles which\r\noccur on or close to the apparent crest of the inner rampart. Two sections were\r\naccordingly cut through the ramparts, and the two most conspicuous circles were examined. Two previously unrecorded ramparts were discovered and three phases of occupation were identified. Only a shapeless crumb of poorly made pottery was discovered along with a dozen carefully rounded sling-balls, animal bone and an iron arrowhead.
