Abstract


A co-linear alignment of pits and ditch segments accompanied by a bank is cut by the ramparts of an enclosure annexed to an Iron Age fort. Three consecutive pits may have held posts, whereas the rest had been used for quarrying. They may be the relics of pre-Iron Age earthworks, including a larger system of land divisions. Finds comprise a stone ard and two plain stone balls. Au (adp AR)
