Hillforts in England & Wales by James Dyer. Soft back, 64 pages, Illustrated B&W, 15cm x 21cm. The author considers these points in particular when he tries to assess the function and situation of hillforts, asking questions 'when were they built?', 'by whom?' and 'why?'. A guide to the defences of the ancient Britons both prior to and during the Roman occupation. The book considers the nature of the defences, the design of their entrances and thoughts on the internal design of these monuments, some of which are most spectacularly sited in many parts of western Britain. The book concludes with a brief examination of two typical hillforts excavated by the author.

There are 1,224 hill forts in England. Although some originate in the Bronze Age, the majority of hill forts in Britain were constructed during the Iron Age (about 8th century BC to the Roman conquest of Britain). There was a trend in the 2nd century BC for hill forts to fall out of use.
