The Later Prehistoric Norfolk Project is exploring ancient landscapes, including those around Arminghall Timber Circle and Henge and Warham Camp Iron Age Fort. Both are monuments that provide a point in time for subsequent developments within their nearby landscapes and both seem to have been foci.
