CHYSAUSTER ANCIENT VILLAGE, Newmill, TR20 8XA

Write a review

Chysauster Ancient Village is what remains of an Iron Age settlement, occupied almost 2,000 years ago. The village consisted of stone-walled homes 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 has an open central courtyard surrounded by a number of thatched rooms. The site also has the remains of an enigmatic 'fogou' underground passage.
