Two weeks of evaluative excavations at St Newlyn East were undertaken between August 27th and 7th September 2007 by the Cornwall Archaeological Society. The site is a crop-mark enclosure with an overall diameter of approximately 70m defined by a ditch with traces of an external bank, which is visible on aerial photographs. It is anticipated that the site will prove to be a henge monument dating to the Later Neolithic period (c 3000-2500 cal BC). If so, this will be the first Neolithic henge monument to be examined in Cornwall since the early 1960s when Castilly was investigated by the Society, and its investigation will therefore make a significant contribution to archaeological knowledge in the county.
