Archaeology Notes

On the northern slope of the Hoe, and on a terrace at about 60m below the crag-line is a group of three embanked cell-structures. One is a double cell-structure measuring 6.6m N-S, and containing cells 3m and 1.6m in diameter respectively. The other two are single-cells. Adjacent and to the E is a narrow plateau containing traces of rig and furrow cultivation.
