Grimspound, Devon, England

Grimspound is a late Bronze Age settlement, situated on Dartmoor in Devon, England. It consists of a set of 24 hut circles surrounded by a low stone wall. The site was most likely used for farming and not defensive purposes. The name was first recorded by the Reverend Richard Polwhele in 1797; it was probably derived from the Anglo-Saxon god of war, Grim (more commonly known as Woden, or Odin). Grimspound is thought to have been the model for the Stone Age settlement in which Sherlock Holmes camped in The Hound of the Baskervilles.
