MOUNT CABURN CAMP

DESCRIPTION + /

The earthworks and interior of a small multivallate hillfort situated on The Caburn. Part excavation in 1937-8 revealed the hilltop to have undergone a complex history of development from the Iron Age to the medieval period. Initially, to 100 BC, the settlement comprised an Iron Age open village, followed by a more complex fortified proto- "town" settlement from about 100 BC to the Roman conquest. There was evidence of further fortification at the time of the Roman conquest. Later phases of use included local reconstruction at an unknown date (probably Saxon) and a mid-12thc phase of refortification as an Adulterine castle.This monumnet was mapped from aerial photographs as part of the English Heritage: South Downs Project.
