Caradon Archaeology AGM and 2017 Update

Caradon Archaeology was set up by the Caradon Hill Area Heritage Project to monitor the condition of scheduled monuments (over 700) in the Caradon Area. Our reports are sent to the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Historic Environment Service.

These in turn are used by Historic England to monitor the condition of the archaeology in the area and inform how to improve it.

Can you help us? Please come along, membership is free and we are a friendly bunch!
