Site Description


A defended low hillock is defined by traces of internal scarping on the north, berming on the north, south and east, and counterscarping on the south and west. The enclosed area measures about 100m north by south by 75m. The scarp edge which defines the enclosure extent rises to a maximum of about 4m above the surrounding slope.
The north end berm has been turned over by grazing horses.
