Casterton Stone Circle
Casterton Stone Circle
'19 stones all under two feet high forming a circle some 62 feet in diameter, set in an irregular earthwork mound. It dates from the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age (2000-600 BC). Although not the most imposing physical site, it has proved one of the most fruitful for artefacts, with over 1,800 finds recorded, including drinking vessels, flint arrowheads and a bronze spearhead.': Dr Gareth Evans LinkExternal link
