Hot Weather Uncovers Unknown Archaeological Sites

Lansallos Beach     Archaeological Sites

The recent heatwave in the UK has done much more than attract people to the beaches around Cornwall, the parched ground has revealed ancient sites only now discovered because of their outlines appearing as cropmarks on fields.

An Iron Age round has been discovered at St Ive near Callington and an ancient settlement at Lansallos in south east Cornwall.

Cornwall has a huge concentration of stunning archaeological sites.
