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

Anthony Payne The Cornish Giant, Sir Godfrey Kneller, Baronet (1646-1723)

Oil on canvas, English School, 1680. Anthony Payne (circa 1612-1691), The Cornish Giant, was 7 foot, 4 inches tall. He was a yeoman of Stratton and was the personal retainer to Sir Bevill Grenville, a leading Royalist. He was present at the Battle of Lansdown (1643) when Sir Bevill was killed. This painting was commissioned by Charles II, probably as a gift to Sir Bevill's son, John of Stowe in Kilkhampton parish. Anthony Payne is shown wearing the uniform of a Halberdier of the Guns of Plymouth Citadel. He died at Stratton, near Bude, in the same house he was born in. Born in Germany, Kneller became the leading portraitist in England during the late 17th and early 18th centuries
