Two Iron Age brooches from the Iron Age cemetery at Harlyn Bay, St Merryn, Cornwall. 1900-1906

Two Iron Age brooches from the cemetery which was excavated between 1900 and 1906. The photograph shows the topside of one brooch and the underside of another. When digging foundations for a new house to be built, Mr Reddie Mallett made an important archaeological discovery by finding a cist containing human remains. Excavations over the next 6 years found Harlyn Bay to be the largest Iron Age burial site in Cornwall. Bronze Age barrows had been discovered in 1864, on the west side of the bay, near the cliff edge, by a labourer digging a pond on land owned by Mr Hellyar. Photographer: Unknown
