Title: Mount Caburn
Description: Located approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) from Lewes, Mount Caburn is isolated from the rest of the South Downs through valleys cut by the River Ouse and tributaries. An early Iron Age hill fort can be found here, built on the site of a Bronze Age village, with the defensive ramparts surrounding an area of 3.5 acres (1.4 hectares). Occupied between 500 BC and 100AD, the need to live in a protective hill fort became obsolete when the Romans came in the first century, bringing with them an era of peace.
