KNOOK DOWN EAST AND WEST SETTLEMENTS

DESCRIPTION + /

A complex of two Roman settlement sites in close proximity to an Iron Age hillfort (Knook Catle), and reusing an existing linear ditch system. The two settlements are just 600 metres apart and are linked by a length of hollow way. Each survives in the form of earthworks of compounds and trackways. Occupation of the settlements spans the Roman period, though much of the finds are grouped in the 2nd-4th centuries AD. Possible associated featues include field systems, Knook Castle and a complex of boundary earthworks.
