Woden Law

One of the Cheviot Hills in the S Scottish Borders, Woden Law rises to 422m (1384 feet) 1¼ miles (2 km) west of the English border and 9 miles (15 km) southeast of Jedburgh. There is a substantial hill fort on its summit, comprising multiple defensive ramparts but enclosing only a relatively small area. The site has been interpreted as being a modest Iron-Age hill fort which was occupied by the Roman Army, who build additional defences as a training exercise, with later re-use of the site by local inhabitants in the 3rd century AD.
