Title Stonehenge Southern WHS Project: Vespasian’s Camp, Amesbury, Wiltshire: Analytical Earthwork Survey
Summary Vespasian’s Camp is a hillfort situated on the west bank of the River Avon at Amesbury, Wiltshire. It is the only major Iron Age monument within the Stonehenge World Heritage Site but had not been surveyed in detail until the present study. The analysis has highlighted the form of the monument, aspects of which are unusual; it has also thrown light on the Bronze Age objects found within barrows on the site and on the 18th-century landscaping of the site, several elements of which survive as earthworks.
