NW KAP Shot of Tumulus Oldox or Oxdon Hill Fort

A shot looking over the tumulus that was excavated back in the late 18th century. A funerary urn was found, along with knife, sword and beads. This suggests an Iron age to Saxon date, but with no modern evidence to confirm the dating, then this will remain just a paragraph in history.
