007 Situated on and occupying the entire summit of the above hill. The surface is concave especially to the north and in form an ellipse. It is 66 yards long by 30 in breadth. Human bones have been discovered wherever excavations have been made on it. An immense pile of small boulder stones lies on the north face of the hill of which tradition has nothing to say as to what purpose they were used. The track of a bank can be seen here and there all along the border of the hill and slopes evidently artificial can be traced in many places round this ancient fortress of which tradition is silent as to its origin.
