Hillfort Contour Models

We have been finding out all about Iron Age Hillforts.  By looking at maps, we discovered that these were mostly built on top of hills in the more 'mountainous' regions of the UK such as in Cornwall and Wales.  By looking closely at the contour lines on the maps, we could see how how and steep the hills were.

 

We took an Ordnance Survey map of Danebury Hillfort and used the contour lines to help us cut up and layer the topography to recreate a mini model of the hill.
