MACKNEY RINGFORT

0
Rated 0 out of 5

Uncovered due to the construction of the nearby M6 motorway, the excavation at Mackney ringfort found a long sequence of settlement and occupation activity at the site.

The fort dates between the 8th and 17th century. A range of internal features also survived within the ringfort. It is believed that the fort was later used as a burial place as the excavations discovered 143 individual skeletons, primarily of infants under the age of six years, concentrated in the south-western arc of the ring fort ditch.
