Reading The Hurlers - Planning the dig

Reading The Hurlers Project Co-ordinators Emma Stockley and Calum Beeson (left) along with Cornwall Archaeological Unit’s (right) met on site to plan the dig taking place at the Hurlers.  From 13th to the 17th of September - Cornwall Archaeological Unit’s Jacky Nowakowski and James Gossip will be conducting a dig at the site of the potential 4th circle with the goal of exposing and evaluating the area, to determine whether it is a circle and how it may fit into the entire Hurlers complex.

During the course of the project, the Geology of the area will play a key role as a detailed and broad Geology survey will be undertaken of the granite resources surrounding the Hurlers and of the granite the Hurlers Standing stones are made from themselves.

If you wish to take part in the dig, please contact James Gossip:
