Morecambe Bay Sunset Series: Warton Crag: An Iron Age Hill Fort - or is it?

Join Kevin Grice for his fascinating reinterpretation of Warton Crag 'Iron Age hill fort'.

Kevin will discuss recent research on the Iron Age hill fort on Warton Crag. He will explore both the antiquarian and twentieth-century documentary sources and evaluate the results of recent LiDAR imaging.

He will contrast the different views on the possible date and function of the monument including modern re-interpretations.

Kevin will consider whether its dating may be more complex than previously thought and he will set out an alternative hypothesis and suggest further investigations.
