Stone mortar excavated at Iron Age cemetery, Harlyn Bay, St Merryn, Cornwall. 1968

A view of a stone mortar formerly at the museum at Harlyn Bay. The Iron Age cemetery in Harlyn Bay was excavated between 1900 and 1906. When digging foundations for a new house to be built, Mr Reddie Mallett had 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. The museum was closed in the 1970s and most of the artefacts transferred to the Royal Cornwall Museum. Photographer: Charles Woolf
