Hambledon Hill

UK»England»Dorset»Hambledon Hill

Hambledon Hill: Little remains of the Neolithic activity and the site is more easily identified as a prime example of an Iron age hill fort. It was originally univallate but further circuits of banks and ditches were added increasing its size to 125,000 square meters. Three entrances served the fort, the south western with a 100 m long hornwork surrounding it. Hut platforms can be seen on the hillside.
