Full Description

The Gallop site (MUN039) revealed evidence of Early Iron Age pits and two curvilinear pit-dug ditches which would most likely have formed a circle. This ring ditch monument contained struck flint dating to the Late Neolithic period, potentially contemporary with the Late Neolithic features from the Paddocks (MUN 038).
