An Iron Age Enclosure at Oldfield Hill, Meltham (1976) by J.P. Toomey

An Iron Age Enclosure at Oldfield Hill, Meltham was written by J.P. Toomey and published as a special report for The Brigantian, the journal of the Huddersfield and District Archaeological Society.

The publication contains a detailed report on the excavations carried out by the society at Oldfield Hill between 1960 and 1967, which concluded that there was no evidence to support earlier claims of a Roman encampment on the site and that it was most likely an early Iron Age enclosure with a wooden defensive palisade.
