This suggests that, in this case, the earth and stone defences did directly replace a wooden palisade. An equally complex sequence is evident at the hillfort on Craik Moor, overlooking the upper reaches of the Bowmont Water. At 457m above sea level, this is the highest hillfort in the Cheviots, and one of the most spectacular and least visited sites. Here, there are no fewer than four lines of palisade trench and two of stone-built rampart. The smaller stone-built circuit seems to have been the latest phase of construction, but may have been contemporary with a timber palisade shielding the entrance.
