Dig unearths new monument at 'The Hurlers' on Bodmin Moor

Archaeologists digging on the site of 'The Hurlers' stone circles have discovered a new monument which may have marked the head of a processional avenue.

The stone is made of granite but doesn’t match the granite from the immediate area and was probably brought to the site by early humans. The five day excavation, part of the 'Reading the Hurlers' project, was inspired by previous observations which indicated the presence of a potential fourth stone circle.
