aerial photograph of Grabbist Iron Age Hillfort, Grabbist Hill, Dunster, Somerset, England, UK. Probably constructed around the late bronze age or early Iron Age, according to Historic England this hill fort was never finished. The fort is what is termed a Slight univallate hillfort, and while the purpose of such forts is uncertain, it may have been used as a place of safety during troubles rather than a place of large scale permanent occupation.
