Pottery

Bronze Age fragments of cord-impressed Trevisker pottery were found in 2012 and a few later pieces show a continuing interaction several thousand years after the quoit first appeared in the landscape. Where small communities lived is unknown although a couple of roundhouses on nearby Copper Hill could suggest that some people were living close by. The potential date range represented by the prehistoric pottery is quite remarkable. It is clear that the significance of Carwynnen Quoit continued to resonate and be relevant across the entire span of Cornish prehistory. Stories of the importance of Carwynnen clearly lingered on and were handed down through the generations.
