Ancient Britons

The Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages preceded the Roman invasion of Britain in 43 AD and clues to the lives of the Ancient Britons are still being discovered.

Burial mounds called barrows are the the oldest architectural built heritage in England (3800 BC and 3500 BC). See Soulton Long Barrow near Wem in Shropshire and Round Barrows in the Shropshire Hills.

British Camp in the Malvern Hills is the site of an Iron Age hillfort and nearby, the Midsummer Hill fort with more than 480 hut platforms. Croft Ambrey Hillfort is on the Croft Castle estate, Herefordshire and Kinver Camp Iron Age fort at Kinver Edge, Staffordshire, overlooks 18th century sandstone rock houses.
