Published by Wessex Archaeology
In October 2007, an archaeological evaluation was undertaken by Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’ at a site in Lellizzick near Padstow in Cornwall (NGR 191116 77177) to investigate a series of circular anomalies identified by aerial photography and geophysical survey following extensive metal detecting. The aim of the evaluation was to investigate the nature of these anomalies and ascertain their date, character, condition and extent.
The project was successful in identifying a roundhouse settlement dating from Romano-British through into the post-Roman period, with evidence of occupation over perhaps five or six centuries, although no definitive evidence for pre-Roman settlement was found. Investigation of the architectural details of the roundhouses indicated a Bronze Age building technique observed on other Cornish sites being utilised well into the Romano-British period.
