British researchers are hoping to assemble a database of the 5,000 hill forts spread across Ireland and the U.K. To that end, they are asking residents to provide information about local forts to a website. "There is huge variety in where the hill forts were sited and the materials used to construct them," said Gary Lock, who is co-directing the research. The lion's share of the forts were constructed after 700 B.C., and the largest ones cover as much as 200 acres.
