Details of hill-fort on Pastscape

(SU 0180 2812) Chiselbury Camp (NR). An Iron Age univallate hill-fort (see plan (3) and air photographs (4)) enclosing 8 1/2 acres, with an entrance at the south east, where there is a slight semi-circular outwork. The interior is arable.
Bivallate ditches run from the north side to the edge of the escarpment and from the south-east outwork towards the bottom of the combe (3) and possibly beyond in a southerly direction (5). Dr R C C Clay (3) has found Iron Age pottery just outside the camp and a lead spindle-whorl or net-sinker possibly Romano-British, both surface finds. The Rev G H Engleheart (3) has a coin of Constantine 1, found within the camp. (2-5)
