Similarly for Cattrail and Black dykes in Northumberland. But also significantly such places seem to be mainly sited in the environs of Hill forts, which may indicate that the lowland outreaches were potentially available for more intensive agricultural exploitation. A plot of approximately place-names containing the Latin derived street, strete, streatham, streetham, stratton, stretton, stratfield, stretford, stratford, streetley, streatley, ranging from Cornwall to Scotland, closely correlate with the OS known and conjectured Roman roads.
Although a difficult phenomenon to interpret language replacement models can be proffered, notably:. Such a model could readily apply to the Roman occupation of Britain where control over the population and resources was quickly gained and long maintained , seemingly without recourse to the substantial immigration apparently seen elsewhere in the Empire, described in the accompanying Roman Europe paper.
Herein possession of a superior technique of exploitation perhaps better iron weapons and implements by a few newcomers combined with good organisation is necessary to generate an increase of population, who then continue to steadily spread out, for example as the next generation seeks additional farmland.

Mathematically maintenance of five or so people per sq. Classical historians regard the invasion of Britain as having occurred in the early 5 th century AD, and point to Gildas, Bede, the AS Chronicle and the Rivet and Smith brythonic interpretation of Roman period place-names as evidence. However the necessary defences, for example the equivalent extensive fort system needed by the Romans, is apparently not archaeologically evidenced in the landscape of that period.
Although these are place-names considered to be possibly of the Viking period 9th to 11th centuries AD, scant direct achaeological evidence has been identified for Vikings, such as cremation burials with grave goods or 10th century settlements with Scandinavian-style artefacts. Worths are found in the German but not Scandinavian lands of the nearby continent see Fig The Ring fort or Rath comprising a fairly circular area enclosed by a stone or earthen rampart, commonly situated on rounded hills in the more sheltered positions below the summit, is the normal type of protohistoric habitation found in Ireland, explained as family farmsteads or small settlements.
Raferty considered such dwelling places not to be Hill forts, in that they do not seemingly defend a hilltop or other strongly defensible natural position by enclosing an extensive area of land within one or more ramparts of earth or stone. Based on field surveys and perusal of the limited archaeological literature, Raferty however has identified approximately forty sites to date, which can be tentatively included in the Hill fort category, divided into the three main classes:.
Notably, when compared to Britain or the Continent the number of Hill forts in Ireland is surprisingly small. Maybe therefore further examples are awaiting discovery through more intensive air photography. Figure 19 based onP. Conventionally these place-names are assumed to be Scandinavian settlers of the th centuries AD, where the place-names can also be found. All occur close to late oppida BC and into the Roman period :.
A similar period might also be appropriate for the Scilly settlement, contemporary with the abandonment of the Hill forts in south Wales during the Roman occupation.

Ightham is built along the same defensive house design as Hever: a moat, a square building with a gate, a bridge, an inner courtyard and the door to the living quarters. As I wrote earlier, Ightham Mote was lived in until I can really imagine it. What a great house! I dont think I'd ever leave.
