10 best Archaeological Walks in the UK? - Joey - 9th July 2014

I've got a week off from digging next week and fancied going on an archaeological walk. That got me wondering what the best archaeological walks in the UK would be.

A challenge then!!!!!! To come up with the 10 best archaeological walks in the UK.

My meagre and obvious contribution is Hadrian's Wall. After that I'm pretty much stuck.

Maiden Castle
York

Offa Dyke path is good too as it crosses some spectacular hillforts. It is over 150 miles long though !

Pembrokeshire Coast Path: Newgale to Fishguard about 45 miles - Neo burial chambers, Iron Age promentory forts, early medieval chapel sites, medieval city cathedral, unique med/Tudor farmhouse architecture, 18th century industrial ports. Stunning scenery, dolphin spotting, puffins and vibrant Welsh culture. Could throw in a detour to Precelli and visit the source of the bluestones.

Stone circles in the Lake District - all in superb locations - also worth visiting the Roman fort at the Hardknott Pass to see something really spectacular.
