Rough Tor prehistoric settlement, Bodmin Moor from the air
|Buy this picture|
aerial photograph of Rough Tor prehistoric settlement, Bodmin Moor Cornwall England UK. The area was excavated by Time Team Series14, Episode 13 and they found the linear feature in the top left to be a long Cairn dating from the Neolithic period. The stone rows were pierced by tanks during the second world war when the whole area was used as a military training ground. The hut circles produced dating evidence from the Neolithic period and the bronze age and even a piece of Roman glass was found. At some point , the settlement was abandoned probably due to climate change or environmental change as the area changed from a fertile wooded area to the cold wet moor we see today.
The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
