Abstract:
The earthwork enclosure, is situated on the edge of a near vertical scarp slope approximately 225m above sea level. It had been obscured by woodland and had no therefore been note from the air or otherwise recorded. The enclosure is formed by a semi-circular earthen bank, (surviving to a height of 2m at its northern end, with narrow external ditch and is approximately 140m long and 75m wide. The earthworks decrease in height and clarity as they continue southwards. The earthworks were surveyed using a plane table and a sample area was subjected to a Magnetometery survey. On the basis of the topographic and geophysical data, three trail trenches were excavated. Whilst all three trenches were excavated to bedrock, nothing o archaeological significance was encountered. More detailed observations of the bank and ditch strongly suggest that the monument was never completed and that construction work was suddenly halted, possibly due to a misalignment of one section of the bank making the enclosure indefensible.
