CASTLE HILL

DESCRIPTION + /

Norman ringwork excavated, revealing a Late Saxon hall house. Roman pottery was also found during the excavations. The most recent interpretation suggests that the first occupation of the site was in the late 10th century. In the early 11th century a bank and ditch were constructed with a massive rampart added in the mid 11th century. Soon afterwards the rampart was heightened and widened and the present ringwork was perhaps created at this stage. The site was abandoned by the mid 12th century.
