aerial photograph of Rough Tor prehistoric settlement, Bodmin Moor Cornwall England UK. Some of the nearby hut circles were excavated in 2007 by Time Team Series14, Episode 13 and they found 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.
