Abstract:
A site survey and small `evaluation' excavation trench were undertaken on the multivallate enclosure. The survey revealed a more complex monument than was previously thought with evidence of multi-phase activity. The single excavation trench located on the outer western rampart was able to confirm two or possibly three phases of activity on this particular part of the monument. Two buried land surfaces were located below the rampart; the upper dating to the Neolithic and the one below to an earlier, though as yet undated, period. The single accelerator carbon date (`Appendix 1: carbon date' (102)) from the upper buried land surface dates the construction of the phase 1 dump, which sits directly on it, indicating that this initial earthwork dates to the Neolithic c. 3300--3000BC 9cal). This is the first carbon dated Neolithic enclosure in the northern uplands. It has important implications for the question of `causewayed enclosures' in the north as well as for re-evaluating the old typological question of when is a hillfort really a hillfort, and how many northern hillforts overlie earlier enclosures.
