Our Projects - Dodman Point

16 The Dodman is the site of a large promontory fort along the south coiast of Cornwall. It is formed by a large bivallate rampart (called The Bulwarks) up to 750m long crossing the headland and enclosing an area measuring at least 20ha at the southern seaward end. This form of monument is generally associated in Cornwall with the Iron Age. The survey revealed the medieval strip field system extending over much of the remaining sites. In addition several probable prehistoric features were identified including a ring ditch possibly surrounding the site of a barrow, and a number of linear features which are suggestive of further prehistoric enclosure.
