Carn Euny 17 Jun 2014

Helford class were lucky enough to visit Carn Euny on Monday. This is among one of the best preserved ancient villages in the south west, occupied from the Iron Age until late Roman times. It includes the foundations of stone houses, and an intriguing ‘fogou’ underground passage. Miss Chapman from Penryn College and her History Leaders ran mini workshops and kept the class busy all day with help from the Cornwall Heritage Trust who financed the visit. They were exploring the village and fort, making shields, identifying remains, weaving and jewellery making as well as imagining what it really would have been like all those years ago.
