CADBURY CASTLE

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of an enclosed settlement from the Iron Age and an Early Medieval large timber building with large amounts of scattered pottery. The site of the surviving earthworks is known as Cadbury Castle.

Surface finds were collected in the 1950s, consisting of Early Medieval (5th/6th century) pottery imported from the Mediterranean. These finds renewed speculation about the site's enduring association with the Arthurian Camelot and prompted the excavations in 1966-70 under Leslie Alcock.
