Harlyn in History

Archaeologically, it is an important site for artefacts, some of which can now be seen in the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro. Two gold lunulae (crescent shaped neck ornaments made of thinly beaten gold) together with a flat axe, which are believed to date from the early Bronze Age were found in 1865 in the cliff at Onjohn Cove between Harlyn Bay and Cataclews Point by a labourer. They seem to have the same origin as that of other gold lunulae found in Cornwall. It is suggested they are of Irish origin.

Excavations were carried out here in the early years of the 20th century between 1900 and 1905. There is evidence of Bronze Age barrows. Fragments of Bronze Age pottery have also been found. A prehistoric cemetery existed here.
