Site Description The Knave promontory fort is a bivallate defended enclosure, c.52m by 44m internally, with the outer defences set 14-20m from the inner circuit, resting on 60m cliffs to the S. Excavations (1938) showed the inner rampart to have been internally revetted & fronted by a ditch, the outer line being boulder-kerbed internally & also ditched; an internal structure, 3.7m in diameter, was examined; the ceramic assemblage was thought to be of c.50BC-50AD.
