Mellor is an exceptional archaeological site. An Iron Age hillfort on the fringes of the Pennines in Stockport it was only discovered in 1995. Its investigation has been the result of a partnership between the Mellor Archaeological Trust and the University of Manchester. Excavations have revealed many exciting discoveries, often in almost surreal situations, such as a deep defensive ditch hidden beneath an almost flat suburban lawn, a Bronze Age flint dagger, and Iron Age roundhouses. This volume brings together the latest research on the site, first presented at a study day in 2003, and places it firmly in its regional context as a type-site for Iron Age and Romano-British upland settlement.
