Hi,

> Any update on how folk are progressing with this?

Rory and I spent some time going through them and earthworks=rath is no more. However, perhaps only 5% of ring forts are mapped. I find the split between ring fort, hill fort and ring ditch seems to be somewhat nebulous, so mapping the difference can be difficult.

The correct tagging appears to be:
* fortification_type=ringfort
* historic=archaeological_site
* site_type=fortification
* historic:civilization=celtic <-- I've added this, Rory hasn't
