Map of Iron Age Hill Forts

Oxford’s School of Archaeology is to carry out a major survey designed to map all the ancient hill forts across Britain and Ireland and is asking for help from the general public.
It looks like an interesting project and might give a useful picture of Britain during the ancient druids’ hey day.

That's a big project and a stonking big grant.

I'd encourage anybody who can contribute to do so and help make it a success.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.

I am looking forward to reading the results. Unfortunately my local archaeology soc is pretty much an industrial archaeology interest group so I don't think this will much interest them. Damn the industrial revolution :wink:
