Thanks for this!
This is a most interesting development, at least to me, and has rattled a few theories that I have considered in the past.
I shall look closer at your evidence shortly.

There is also a MIA
Wootton Hill type enclosure at the SE corner of the main fort
probably part of the MIA reworking in that part of the fort,
this is separate as well. Could I suggest you either look at
the Atlas entry for Borough Hill at:-
or our data for the
project at:- http://claspweb.org.uk/?page_id=1277
When looking at the
latter link look at both the individual report and the other
link at the bottom of the page for more info.

Is the annex attached or separate from the main fort?

I am returning to Britarch with a new email address, I was one of

Back to business!
When surveying Borough Hill, Daventry, hill fort for the Atlas of
Hillforts Project we located a five-sided, previously unrecorded,
'fortlet' (my word) with bi-vallate, in places possibly
defences immediately below the principal east facing entrance. The
or /procaestra/ is towards the foot of the hill apparently
track that leads into the fort. It appears that the entrance of
annex faced east as well. The main hillfort is Bronze Age and
as the second largest in England., the annex appears to be of
age. In all probability it would be middle to late Bronze Age.
On the opposite side of Daventry, to the west, at a recent
excavation a smaller five-sided Bronze Age enclosure was located
situated on overlooking its immediate area and other nearby Bronze
features. This originated with four entrances at the cardinal
the ditch was subsequently re-cut with an east facing single
Do List members have knowledge of similar five-sided enclosures,
especially in relationship to hill-forts?
