Site Description A somewhat angular, sub-oval enclosure, c.264m N-S by 204m E-W, crowns an isolated hill above the Tanat valley. Defined by a single rampart, there is a substantial inturned entrance on the E, 62m wide and 68m deep, narrowing to an entrance gap c.8.0m wide, taking advantage of a cleft in the hilltop. A small watercourse issues from this cleft a little further downslope.

Excavation in 1983 produced a l.BA date (l.8-9th C.BC) for the earliest occupation, persisting until the m.2nd C. BC (Musson 1992).
