Iron Age hillfort found in Chiltern Hills with help of 'citizen scientists'

An Iron Age hillfort hidden under trees and foliage has been discovered with the help of "citizen scientists".

Members of the Beacons of the Past group identified the site, in the Chiltern Hills, from digital survey images last year and the hillfort was verified on 6 August.

It is thought the circular site dates from the early Iron Age in England, between 800BC and 500BC.

Work will take place to preserve the site.
