Old Sarum Hillfort | Aerial Film of Huge Iron Age Earthwork in Salisbury, UK | Megalithomania

An aerial film of Old Sarum, a huge earthwork raised in about 500BC by Iron Age settlers and later occupied by Romans, Saxons and Normans. It included a castle and a royal palace, and by the mid-12th century it was a busy town with a fine new cathedral, the outline of which can be seen today. Lack of water and arguments between the church and military lead to the building of a new settlement by the river, now known as Salisbury. Old Sarum was abandoned and fell into ruin. Indications of prehistoric settlement have been discovered from as early as 3000 BC and it is located only a few miles from Stonehenge. Visit Old Sarum on the Megalithic Mysteries of England Tour in July 2022 which includes private Stonehenge access: http://www.megalithomania.co.uk/englandtour.html.
