Abstract


The inner face of the inner ring of the fort nearly all round the site was revealed, showing that the central fort was an irregular oval. Extensive robbing of the stonework had taken place. Parts of the outer rampart were also detected. Artefacts included a jet suspension ring, a bronze terret, a hollow hemisphere of lead, and a bronze object of uncertain use.
