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

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.

Lower Greadow Farmhouse, Luxulyan, Cornwall. 1972 Featured Print

Lower Greadow Farmhouse, Luxulyan, Cornwall. 1972

Lower Greadow Farmhouse, showing the remains of a medieval monastery building which belonged to Tywardreath Priory. The farm is in Luxulyan Parish and the parish boundary runs close to the eastern side of the farm. According to 1888 and 1908 Ordnance Survey maps it was known as Lower Gready. Two nearby farms to the east were known as Middle Gready and Higher Gready, both of these being east of the parish boundary in Lanlivery Parish. At some time since then the word Gready has been changed to Greadow. A granite stone outside Higher Greadow Farm still reads Higher Gready Farm. An aerial view from Google Maps (2019) suggests that some of the remains have since been removed. Photographer: Charles Woolf.

A crowd of people gathered to watch a Cornish wrestling match at an unknown location, Cornwall. 1970

An open air wrestling match, with a crowd of people watching, some of whom are sitting on hay bales. There is a stickler (referee) in the ring and the two wrestlers, wearing the traditional jackets, are in a clinch with one about to put the other on the ground. Flood lights are strung across the circle. Photographer: Charles Woolf .
