(Badbury Rings) Dorset, England.
Although only 90 m high, this little hill-fort
occupies an important vantage-point. The roughly egg-shaped enclosure, which has not been excavated, has two
lines of defense surrounded by a slighter rampart and
ditch, with two narrow entrances at the ends. At the
crossing of two Roman roads immediately W of the fort
lay the Roman posting-station of Vindocladia. Beside the
road which leads towards Dorchester (Durnovaria) lie
three mounds which are probably funerary monuments of Roman date.
