Abstract

Aerial survey during the 1970s identified two plough-levelled enclosures, 300m apart, on Winnall Down, Winchester. One of these, Winnall Down I, was excavated by Fasham (1985) in advance of the M3 motorway extension, and revealed evidence for intensive Bronze Age and Iron Age occupation. The adjacent enclosure, Winnall Down II, was not examined by Fasham however, and its date and relationship to Winnall Down I was not known. This paper details the results of a small-scale research excavation on Winnall Down II. It established that some occupation within both enclosures was contemporaneous and this arrangement implies complex agreements over land apportionment and agricultural activities.
