Will someone will access to the OED please look up "acclivated" for me? It's from page 241, and I'm really curious about, since I haven't been able to track it down in other dictionaries.

The Chambers Dictionary doesn't have acclivated exactly (and Firefox tells me off with a dotted line) but I'd imagine it's just from:
acclivity - an upward slope [L ad to, and clivus a slope]
acclivitous or acclivous
