ROUGHTOR

DESCRIPTION + /

Neolithic - Bronze Age enclosed settlement. A small fortification on the summit of Rough Tor built between and including two rock outcrops. On the west two lines of stone walls can be traced, but on the east little remains of an artificial defence. It is classified by Hencken as Bronze Age and Thomas considers that it may be contemporary with the BA settlement south west of Rough Tor (SX 18 SW 5), but Dyer states that it is "difficult to date, though it probably belongs to the Bronze-Iron Age transition". Dyer and Hencken mention that hut circles exist within the enclosed area.
