The History of Cornwall is fascinating and sometimes controversial. The evidence of a colourful history is everywhere. There are many websites and other sources that dedicate themselves to it amongst which the Cornwall County Council has a very informative time line. We have researched from various sources, but cannot take any responsibility for the accuracy of it.
Essentially the history is as follows.
It has long been accepted that early people came to the UK from Europe and then spread throughout the mainland. The earliest evidence of humanity in Cornwall suggests some seaside settlements and hill forts. There are some remnants of Neolithic settlements such as the Standing Stones (Menhirs, eg Hurlers, Quoits (eg Lanyon Quoit as in the photo) and other Burial Monuments such as Bollowal Barrow were constructed. Around 2500 BC the Bronze Age began, when people started metalworking for the first time and Cornwall’s obvious assets of Tin and Copper saw some growth in the amount of settlements. The extraction of copper and tin at this time would have been limited to washing it from the mud in the streams. By the Iron Age of 500BC, these first inhabitants were joined by other European settlers now known as the Celts who brought with them new metalworking skills. Some examples of small settlements from this Iron Age period include Chysauster or Carn Euny.

I hope you like it.
