This chapter (re-)examines Little Woodbury and two other small enclosed settlements in Wessex, Gussage All Saints and Winnall Down in order to stress the need to consider settlement evidence as part of a larger complex study of landscape relationships. The aim is to question the validity of the type-site models. Enclosures in Wessex frequently occur within complex systems of fields, linears, and other enclosures. This suggests that rather than a dispersed settlement pattern of isolated farms, Iron Age settlements were often closely spatially, and perhaps socially, related.
