Iron Age enclosure at Coppingburn Crag (Kirkwhelpington)
Between 2000 and 3000 years ago, during what archaeologists call the Iron Age, people built this enclosure on Coppingburn Crag, surrounded by an irregular dry stone wall made of boulders. There are no signs of stone round houses inside the enclosure, which may have been used as a defensive enclosure settlement or as a non-defensive settlement.
|Historical period:||Iron Age (800BC to 43AD)|
