Spindle whorls, Iron Age brooches and various rings from the Iron Age cemetery at Harlyn Bay, St Merryn, Cornwall. 1900
A collection of spindle whorls, Iron Age brooches and various rings of different sizes found at the prehistoric Iron Age cemetery excavated between 1900 and 1906 at Harlyn Bay. 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
