Boltby Scar



"There is another camp of the Eston type (Eston Nab) at an altitude of 1075 feet on the brink of a vertical cliff at Boltby scar on the Hambletons. Here a semi-circular rampart with an outer fosse enclosed an area as wide as the Eston Camp but not more than 170 yards long. Within it are two round barrows and a peculiar oblong mound of unknown purpose. I noticed a few flint flakes on the cliff-edge.
The similarity of this camp to that at Eston Nab points to it being the work of the urn people whose remains occurred abundantly on the Hambletons."
