says that an 1899 map calls the fort 'Wulferecester' - Wulfere's town. There's a mound inside the southern part of the enclosure, which is said to be the site of the palace of Wulfere, the Saxon King of Mercia.

Extensive description of the fort.

There are also two probable BA round barrows within the fort.
