People, Pots and Forts: investigating the prehistoric landscape of Southeast Cornwall.
Despite many generations of archaeological fieldwork in Britain’s southwestern peninsula and Cornwall’s central role in later prehistoric exchange networks, the prehistory of the south-eastern part of the county has not been exposed to the same amount of modern archaeological investigation. The Southeast Kernow Archaeological Survey aims to redress this imbalance and ‘Pots, People and Forts: investigating the prehistoric landscape of southeast Cornwall’ will present the research findings to date of the excavation and geophysical survey carried out at Hendersick Barrow, Looe. The talk will also discuss recent results from other geophysical surveys undertaken at several prehistoric sites within the wider landscape of southeast Cornwall. These include Hall Rings, Bake Rings, Duloe Stone Circle and Padderbury Top.
