5520077English Heritage: Maiden Castle
DateSaturday 15th April 2017 to Tuesday 31st December 2019
DescriptionAmong the largest and most complex of Iron Age hillforts in Europe, Maiden Castle's huge multiple ramparts once protected several hundred residents. Excavations in the 1930s and 1980s revealed the site's 4,000-year history, from a Neolithic causewayed enclosure to a small Roman temple built on the site in the fourth century AD. They also produced evidence of an extensive late Iron Age cemetery, where many of the burials had suffered horrific injuries in attacks or skirmishe.
