When on Google Earth 51

Welcome to When on Google Earth 51, having recaptured the prize from MattB it is back on Theoretical Structural Archaeology, obviously you may wish to read my last article, just in case there is a clue (it's worth look- but this time it won't help), I think its easy, good luck.


The Rules of When on Google Earth are as follows:

Q: What is When on Google Earth?
A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!
Q: How do you play it?
A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.
Q: Who wins?
A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.
Q: What does the winner get?
A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!
