Hillfort, Yeavering Bell


The remains of an Iron Age Hillfort are located on Yeavering Bell, a hill near Yeavering and Kirknewton in Northumberland. It was one of the largest known Iron Age hillforts in Britain, surrounded by a large oval enclosure of huge rough stones, with an inner enclosure surrounded by a defensive ditch. Over 100 hut circles have been found in the outer enclosure. The discovery of Roman pottery and coins on the site suggest that the fort was still being used long after the Iron Age.[1] The hillfort is a Sheduled Monument.
