Not really long enough or with enough background for the reader to really get their teeth stuck-in. However, it contains enough technical information to move it out of the 'Time Team tabloid archaeology' camp and into a more serious pigeon hole. Informative and easy to read, the book succeeds in offering a summary glimpse into these structures.

An excellent unpretentious publication, informative and rigorous. Although it is severely outdated (it was first published in 1982) in one or two aspects, it is a must for the shelves of anyone interested in the subject of hillforts (not only those of England and Wales) or the Iron Age in general .

While this may have been a good starting point for information about hill forts when it was published, it is now out dated and lacks more recent thinking and research. Having said that, it was a good read, well presented and brief enough to hold attention.

Enjoyable read as it gives the background information to the types of hill forts and their design. Focuses on several dorts in depth rather than trying to write a brief account of all the major ones.
