The Round Hills Earthwork, Ingoldsby



Reference Name MLI30070

Name:
The Round Hills Earthwork, Ingoldsby

Summary:
The Round Hills Earthwork, Ingoldsby.

Location:
INGOLDSBY, SOUTH KESTEVEN, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
Minor ringwork with bank and outer ditch. There are signs of what may have been an original entrance on the east side. The bank is degraded on the south-west side and the interior has been ploughed. Two worked flints were found at 'one of entrances'. Listed as a univallate hillfort. Scheduled as a camp.
The earthwork encloses 5 acres, and is in a commanding position with good all round visibility. The construction appears too slight to warrant Iron Age classification and has some resemblances to medieval enclosures elsewhere. City and County Museum, Lincoln, records finds of 16th century date and later rubble and stone foundations. {1}{2}{3}{4}{5}{6}{7}{8}{9}
