Walking around the well-preserved remains of Carn Euny Ancient Village in Cornwall, it’s amazing to think it was home to ancient Britons for around 900 years, from the start of the early Iron Age (about 500BC) to the end of the 4th Century AD.
Unsurprisingly, most of the ruins visible today date from the later part of Carn Euny. They represent a number of ‘courtyard houses’, large central courtyards surrounded by thick, interlocking walls. Within these walls were smaller rooms where people lived. This type of house was unique to Western Cornwall.
