Overview

The Malvern Hills are a dramatic ridge of ancient volcanic rocks along the western edge of the Severn Valley. Archaeologically, the hills are known almost exclusively for the two very large and prominent Iron Age hillforts that crown the ridge: British Camp and Midsummer Hil. This report, stemming from the 1999 investigative project, studies the hillforts and other well-known sites, but also focuses attention on the Hills more widely as a landscape of special archaeological interest. The project involved documentary research, aerial survey, and fieldwork, all of which is documented in this colourful book, which looks at the landscape archaeology of the Hills from the prehistoric to the late-medieval and modern periods.
