'Hillfort Glow Experiment'

A little outside my area, unfortunately, otherwise I'd jump at the chance:

HILLFORT history will come to life on the night of the March full moon when flares and torchlight will shine from 10 ancient sites.

Volunteers will be enlisted to take part in the historic experiment between Cheshire and North Wales at dusk on March 19.

Organisers hope to discover whether glowing fires could have been seen and used as a communication system between the Iron Age hillforts of the Sandstone Ridge, the Clwydian Range, Mynydd-y-Gaer Corwen, Halkyn Mountain and Wirral.

Hopefully there'll be a follow up or two, the implications will be very interesting if they succeed.
