Report of an Iron Age settlement (Kielder)
Near a place formerly known as Hitch Hill Wood, a 19th century writer saw an oval-shaped enclosure surrounded by a bank. This may be the remains of a settlement built between approximately 2500 and 3000 years ago, during a period archaeologists call the Iron Age. The location of the enclosure is now within the Kielder Forest, and archaeologists think it may have been destroyed by tree planting.
|Historical period:||Iron Age (800BC to 43AD)|
