BURROW HILL FORT

DESCRIPTION + /

A hill-fort excavated 1923 and 1926 and proved to be iron Age 'B', although occupation was slight. The main interest of the work is structural, the rampart was of earth faced with coursed masonry reinforced with lenghtwise and crosswise timbering. The remains of this construction were found in a very ruined state but they constitute the only approach yet recorded in England to the 'murus Gallicus' of continental Celtic forts. The extent of the camp was somewhat uncertain, modern quarrying having infiltrated.
