AMBRESBURY BANKS

DESCRIPTION + /

A roughly ovate univallate enclosure of Iron Age date with a wide external ditch and some remains of a counter-scarp bank up to 1.0 metre high. The main bank, up to 2.2 metres high, was of dump construction, without any form of revetment, originally separated from the ditch by a berm. Originally the only entrance was on the northwest side approached by a trapezoidal causeway across a V-shaped ditch about 9.0 metres wide and 3.0 metres deep. A scatter of indeterminate flint and pottery and a barbed and tanged arrowhead represent the only early occupation.
