Excavation at Eddisbury

THE Habitats and Hillforts project has been staging a four week archaeological dig at Eddisbury Hill Iron Age Hillfort.

The intention is to re-excavate trenches through the ramparts and one of the entrances that were originally opened up between 1936 and 1938 in order to expose the sections and recover charcoal samples for radiocarbon dating.
