This Iron Age settlement was originally occupied almost 2,000 years ago.
The village consisted of stone-walled homesteads known as 'courtyard houses', found only on the Land's End peninsula and the Isles of Scilly. The houses line a 'village street', and each had an open central courtyard surrounded by a number of thatched rooms.
There are also the remains of an enigmatic 'fogou' underground passage.
