Archaeology Notes

NB56SE 4 5546 6177

The remains of a single bank with at least one internal, and possibly another external, ditch, are drawn across the narrow neck of a promontory with precipitous cliffs on all sides. Although probably a relatively recent construction, the site could conceivably represent a prehistoric promontory fort.
