Archaeology in the Landscape

Gittisham Hill Enclosure

What will I see?

This site is one of the few sites not known to Hutchinson and is indeed very hard to see at all, except to the trained eye. However, it is an important site in that it is overlaid by a Bronze Age barrow and hence enclosures of this sort, of which Farway Castle is another example, could be argued to be earlier and thus date to the Early Bronze Age.
