CADBURY HILL CAMP

DESCRIPTION + /

An Iron Age univallate hillfort and Early Medieval defensive enclosure with a Roman settlement and possible shrine. Alcock suggested that this was also an early monastic site and settlement of the 5th-6th centuries. It was refortified between 430 and 480, with turf and timber ramparts and a bastion. Other Early Medieval features included a longhouse and finds of pottery imported from the Mediterranean. The Early medieval use is thought to be "British" rather than Saxon.
