Quarley Hill is the site of an Iron Age univallate hill fort in Hampshire, southern England. The hill affords commanding views of the surrounding countryside. Oval in plan, the fort is in good condition with a counter-scarp and well defined entrances at north-east and south-west. It is built on the site of an earlier palisade enclosure. There is evidence of prehistoric activity in the area including four large Bronze Age ditches radiating from the hill fort, believed to be part of a Bronze Age farming settlement, and a barrow cemetery about a mile away to the north. There is also evidence for a Roman settlement on the northeast side of the hill, with Roman coins of Maximum II and Constantine the Great, and other sherds found in 1951.

dbo:abstract
  • Das ovale Hillfort auf dem 52 Meter hohen Quarley Hill stammt aus der Eisenzeit. Die zweiphasige Anlage liegt nördlich von Grateley in Hampshire im Hügelland zwischen den Orten Amesbury und Andover in England. Zunächst entstand eine, von einer Palisade umgebene Einhegung. Diese wurde später ergänzt durch einen zwei Meter hohen Wall und einen vier Meter tiefen Graben, mit gestützter Böschung (counterscarp). Der Wall und einer der Zugänge, die sich an der Südwest- und Nordostseite befinden, blieben unvollendet. Die Entstehung dieses und dreier weiterer nahe gelegener Hillforts und ihre Beziehungen zueinander und zu den radialen, linearen Erdwällen in ihrer Umgebung wurden von Barry Cunliffe untersucht. (de)

Today, the ditches and ramparts are for the most part clear, with the centre of the site given over to small trees and shrubs. The site is recorded as a scheduled ancient monument no.67. The fort is surrounded by a Site of Special Scientific Interest called Quarley Hill Fort. (en)
