The UK abounds with reminders of its ancient history, from the stone age through to the Norman invasion. You may have visited a site such as neolithic Skara Brae in the Orkneys, or Sutton Hoo in Suffolk with its Saxon treasures. Perhaps you’ve stomped along Hadrian’s Wall, or explored an iron age fort.
Many are in beautiful parts of the country and can be included on spectacular walks and cycle rides, so tell us about how such places have been part of your travels and how you reached them, including tips for others who may want to follow.
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition.
Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by travel expert Tom Hall, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on 12 July at 9am BST
