Is this Camelot? Or perhaps Mount Badon, site of King Arthur's final battle? Perhaps, for tales of King Arthur cling to this ancient hillfort rising above the pretty village of South Cadbury. The summit of the 150-metre high hill is defended with four earthwork ditches and banks. The site was occupied as early as the Neolithic period. The Romans captured South Cadbury, but at the end of the Roman era, it seems that there was a large settlement with a great hall here. The Saxons later established a mint at South Cadbury.
