The Hunsbury Hills
Hunsbury Hills is a true representation of how life in the British Iron Age was like. People were protected in hill forts (Hunsbury being one of them) to keep them safe from any oncoming threat. The forts settlements were fortified by ditches dug around the perimeter and a timber wall to face the banks as additional protective measures. This was supposed to delay attacks from enemies threatening to overthrow England, especially the Roman and Danish invasions.
