How to tag a double or even triple line of defensive embankments, upper and lower ones with a ditch in between ? The tags situation, place dont fit. And yes its historical (2000 BC) and visible as embankments. The fortress lies on top of a steep and large hill with a 40 m high slope. Hendrik

I recieved from GB a solution for this one, it can be found here a similar one younger still, http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=52.78915&lon=6.22579&zoom=17&layers=M By adding 2 separate man_made embankments drawn in the opposite direction its getting a bit more of a body.
