Iron Age Site

Discovered accidentally, and subsequently excavated by the Alderney Society in the late 1960s, this site consists of a dry stone wall measuring 9 meters in diameter that enclosed a circular hearth and fire pit (radio-carbon dated to 490 BC). During the excavations, a considerable volume of pottery (including near complete pots), animal bones, and small finds such as bone tweezers and loom-weights, were recovered.

The evidence suggests that this represents a domestic late Bronze Age or early Iron Age site associated with pottery production.

Always open to the public.
