Prehistoric enclosure, Martin Down
Prehistoric enclosure, Martin Down
The earthworks in the centre of this photograph are on the north-east side of the rectangular enclosure on the slopes of Martin Down. This rectangular enclosure was excavated by General Pitt-Rivers in 1895 and the existing earthworks are his reconstruction of the site. It is 90m long and 60m wide and believed to date from the mid Bronze Age, with continued use by the Romano-British. The site provides the site-type for the 'Martin Down style enclosure' in the English Heritage Monument Class Descriptions.
