Title:Cadbury Castle, Devon, Reconsidered
Originator:Wilkes, E. M. + Griffith, F.M.
Summary:Geophysical survey has shed new light on the history of Cadbury Castle. At least two prehistoric phases of development have been identified, as well as a previously unknown additional external line of defence which is tentatively suggested to date from the 17th century Civil War. The finds from a 19th century excavation are reviewed and found to represent a significant assemblage of late Roman date.
