Warham Camp, Norfolk

Travel and Other Adventures

One of the most memorable places we visited in Norfolk was Warham Camp, which is the remnants of Iron Age settlement. I’ve said this before on this blog, but it’s really hard for me to wrap my mind around the history of the really old places I’ve visited in Europe so far. It blows my mind when I walk around places that were inhabited by people thousands of years ago. This place was simply magical.

There was a tree on the site that I liked. I’m certain it isn’t as old as the settlement, but still. It had a good vibe.

Warham Camp is circular hill fort. In the photos you can see the hill and trench. This trench/hill circles the settlement and was used for defense. Here are some websites with more information about this interesting place:
