Title:Embury Beacon Summary - August 2013
Originator:AC Archaeology
Summary:At Embury all of the ramparts, the inner, outer and outwork were constructed in the dump style typical of the Middle Iron Age. No evidence of box rampart construction was found in ours or the earlier excavations. Both the 1970s and recent excavations have shown that the entrances are not simple types and are more elaborate than those usually found on promontory or multiple enclosure type forts locally.
