Last summer, we teased with a competition to ‘Spot the Stone Circle‘,  and published the answers a month later.

This year, it’s the turn of hillforts, those large enclosures dating to the Iron Age, often with multiple ditch and bank defenses. We have pictures of twelve hill forts, courtesy of Google Maps, for you to identify. To make things slightly easier, we have restricted ourselves to a geographical area no further West than Bristol, no further North or East than Oxford, but stretching down to the South coast.

So, here are the twelve sites for you to identify, answers in a couple of weeks’ time:
