Cornwall Heritage Trust aims to protect Cornwall's unique and precious historic sites. It also runs an education programme and provides grants to individuals and other organisations.

The Cornwall Archaeological Society, with its roots extending back to the West Cornwall Field Club (founded in 1935), is the leading organisation for Cornwall's archaeologists, both amateur and professional.

The Sustainable Trust has engaged Historic Environment at Cornwall Council to deliver training for amateur archaeologists and to run the project to English Heritage requirements. Headed up by Jacky Nowakowski BA MifA FSA and Community Archaeologist James Gossip BA MIfA, the volunteers worked with enthusiasm and excellence.



We are grateful for the patronage of Professor Charles Thomas CBE DL Dlitt FBA FSA, who commented:-

“As a little Camborne boy, I and my younger brother and baby sister (in pram) used to be taken for long walks to Treslothan; past Killivose, then Wesley's Oak, The Rocks, along hound field past Stennack woods and down leafy lane to our goal, Frying Pan Field. Only later did I learn that this was so called because it contained the Devil's Frying Pan! Many, many times I went to this remote part of Camborne parish, and when as an adult I became both local historian and an archaeologist I used to wonder about Carwynnen Cromlech or Quoit. Why here? Why not on a prominent hill top? Did the field contain prehistoric lynchets or anything else? Well, I never dreamt that in my pensioner years there could and would be an excavation, or that it would prove so tantalisingly productive. This monument stands on its own; apparently it was not contained in a large cairn or mound, may have been designed as open and accessible, had some kind of paving, and really must be seen as a ritual centre rather than primarily for burials. Its all so exciting that we can hardly wait for the next phase and the eventual reconstruction. Where did its builders and users live? Shall we ever know? This part of Camborne parish has its own, sometimes rather frightening, character. We have a major monument, not just for Cornwall, but for neolithic Britain. Well done, all those who took part, and the best of fortune for the next step.”

    A locksmith is the best method to change your car
    key. If you don't have an extra set of keys, a locksmith will typically
    make a duplicate of the part. The locksmith will use the damaged pieces of the key to make a new one.

    popular option for those who don't like intimacy with real women. They can provide companionship for those who are divorced, and some dolls can be programmed with personality traits.

    A blown window can be very difficult to repair. The
    window's open seal allows water to get inside the
    panes of glass. This can lead to damp problems and
    drafts. If the moisture isn't treated, it can lead to mould and rot in the home.
