Join Andrew Rogerson as he presents a talk at the Norfolk Record Office on Bloodgate Hill Fort, South Creake.
The only pre-Roman Iron Age hillfort in Norfolk that lies convincingly on a hill has, since 2003, been in the safe hands of the Norfolk Archaeological Trust, but in 1827, considered no more than a hindrance to agricultural improvement, it was severely damaged by levelling. Despite this partial destruction it remains a site of abiding interest and deserves to be better known. Geophysical survey and limited excavation have provided a better understanding of the sites lay-out and development than was available from its much denuded remains alone. This talk will attempt to place the site in context and summarise out present state of knowledge.
