Caer Bran with Cornwall Heritage Trust

Members and a couple of guests joined Dick Cole of Cornwall Heritage Trust for a fascinating walk around their newly acquired site ‘Caer Bran’. Dick not only gave members an insight into how the site might have looked in ancient times, but also explained about the mining and quarrying that took place more recently. The group also learned that archaeology is not just about digging, but starts with looking at clues above ground; how the vegetation has grown and how the land has been changed by human use over hundreds and thousands of years. Members are looking forward to visiting other sites managed by the Trust and learning more about Cornwall’s past.
