I got into a "did you know" conversation with a guy about the Roundway site when I was here.
He was convinced that the "hollow" in the middle of the "fort" was an ancient dew pond. I said it was the remains of the Cunningham's 1907 excavation, but he reckoned it was clay lined and had been fenced off at one time. He seemed convinced and even quoted a tale of an old Sheppard that used the water collected in it to make his tea.
The "hollow" lines up exactly with Furze Knoll and one of the entrances in the earthwork bank. This site is not considered as an occupation area, do you have any information which might suggest a religious or ceremonial use?
Hi Chance, don't know much about Oliver's Camp, except many years ago used to be a favourite walking place with the dog. But Maud Cunnington's excavations are online in a wonderful WAM article of 1907. There is also a small piece on Mother Anthony's Well, which Cunnington seems to say that it belonged to a Roman villa nearby due to the pottery. The footprint of the villa was outlined in poppies in the wheat field - pretty.
