Situated between the Rivers Thames and Thame, Dorchester has been a Roman town, the capital of the Saxon kingdom of Wessex and a cathedral city. Running across the bottom third of the photograph is Dyke Hills, the earthwork remains of an Iron Age settlement, comprising a double bank and ditch that stretches between the two rivers. On the hill top overlooking the Thames is Castle Hill, or Sinodun Hill Camp, an Iron Age settlement bounded by a bank and ditch.
