Figsbury Ring

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


What an unusual place. Iron Age, but not a fort? Doesn't seem to fit in with anything. Gives a feeling more of the Neolithic.
Any road up, it's worth a visit. The photos don't do justice to the fantastic position, or the panorama, especially down to the Bourne Valley and Salisbury.
The central area is vast, the banks and ditches deep and high. A huge number of man-hours must've been required in its construction.
It remains an enigma, but I feel we should be looking to the Neolithic for answers. Oh, and a few more excavations too, please.
