Book Description:
Conderton Camp enclosed 1.9 hectares. Roughly oval and aligned along a spur, it had simple entrances at each end. Part of the southern rampart was later pulled back to create a new inner cross rampart, drystone faced and with a grandiose inturned entrance. The northern entrance received inturns about that time, before being blocked up. At least ten circular stone houses were built within this upper camp, with over 140 rock cut pits, often stone or wicker lined, among them. A characteristic inventory of impressed and linear incised pottery was recorded and phased. Typical objects of bone, iron, bronze and stone also reflected this well appointed Severn Valley culture. Exotic finds included a glass eye bead from Glastonbury (Somerset) and containers for salt from Cheshire. Conderton Camp was abandoned before late Iron Age times; only sporadic interest in it was shown by Romano British people.
