The Ambresbury Banks are the remains of an Iron Age fort. In Britain the Iron Age lasted from about 800 BC to 100 AD. Legend has it that this might be where Queen Boudicca (Boadicea) of the Iceni fought her last battle in the uprising against the Romans in about AD60 but there are other alternatives. The Roman governor Gaius Suetonius Paulinus succeeded in quelling the rebellion.
