Title: Monumentality in Later Prehistory
Authors: Mytum, Harold
Keywords: Castell Henllys
Issue Date: 2013
Publisher: Springer
Description: The later prehistoric hillfort is found across Europe, and it is seen as a vital component in settlement patterns. Whilst a military purpose is often assumed, the investment in their scale of earthworks is seen as socially signi fi cant. Two concepts are particularly relevant in analysing these large settlements. The fi rst is that of enclosure, by which the area is de fi ned and contained; enclosure is a frequent prehistoric phenomenon, but rarely on this scale. The second is monumentality in the visually impressive nature of the earthworks; this may be visible in other features such as burial mounds and other ritual structures, but here its role within the hillfort tradition is considered.
