The ruins of Old Sarum, an Iron Age Hill Fort.
The hilltop at Old Sarum shows evidence of Neolithic settlement as early as 3000 BC. Cynric, king of Wessex, captured the hill in 552. It remained part of Wessex thereafter. King Alfred restored its fortifications in the early part of the 9th century. It was a frequent residence of Egbert of Wessex and in 960, King Edgar assembled a national council there.
