Iron Age

Very little Iron Age human activity has been recorded on the Long Mynd. However, this later period has a specific ancient site.

Bodbury Ring Hill Fort, a hill fort above Cardingmill Valley, and sits on the top of Bodbury Hill at 380 m (1,250 ft). This feature dates from the Iron Age, c. 500BC, and is therefore much later than other ancient sites on the Long Mynd. Another hill fort nearby sits on the summit of Caer Caradoc. Bodbury Ring is now looked after by The National Trust.

Famous quotes containing the words age and/or iron:

    It seems as if an age of genius must be succeeded by an age of endeavour; riot and extravagance by cleanliness and hard work.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    A sense is what has the power of receiving into itself the sensible forms of things without the matter, in the way in which a piece of wax takes on the impress of a signet-ring without the iron or gold.
