O que você fará

Archaeoastronomy expert Carolyn leads a guided walking tour, through the wonderful rich ancient landscape of Penwith, Cornwall. We will visit a number of ancient sites which includes stone circles, barrows, menhirs to name a few. Carolyn will take the time to describe how the ancient communities lived in this part of Cornwall and talk about how the monuments left by these people fit into this history. She will also talk about how these people related some of these monuments to the night sky.

Lasting for 2.5 hours there is a real opportunity for people to immerse themselves into this fantastic natural landscape while escaping the crowds. The walk takes a circular route, which is about two miles in length and follows ancient trails through the landscape. There are some gentle slopes involved and the path can be uneven. It also can get muddy especially in the winter months. I also run Ancient Cornwall a Bronze Age a walk in another area of West Cornwall which is slightly longer 3 miles. https://www.airbnb.co.uk/experiences/861929 Thanks for looking :)
Other things to note
This is an off road walk apart from 20metres at the start. The tracks can be uneven and slippy, sturdy shoes are requested. The walk is about 2 miles in length but I can be flexible for all abilities.

I thoroughly enjoyed the walk with Carolyn and fellow guest, Victoria. I learnt a great deal about the ancient sites we visited in this part of Penwith - places I wasn't aware off (except for Chun quoit and castle). I feel more knowledgeable about our Bronze Age ancestors and aspects of their lifestyle and interests, particularly in relation to solar and luna cycles. It was genuinely fascinating. The weather was extremely kind to us and the environment was striking. My body appreciated the movement too.

Carolyn was very passionate and very informative. such a shame we have not seen what I think she would've wanted us to see due to fog but nevertheless still had fun :)

We all had a great day being guided around dozens of interesting sites set in stunning moorland/ countryside. Carolyn was hugely helpful in arranging a bespoke tour for my 70 year old parents and I and her knowledge and enthusiasm made the walk both enjoyable and fascinating for us as novices to this field. Carolyn is super friendly and good-humoured and this made for a really great day out. We would highly recommend this experience -thank you Carolyn!

Magical few hours in the company of a true expert who brings to life the past which is helpfully laid out before you. The is a journey into a landscape with so many artefacts that would go unnoticed ordinarily. Carolyn is pleasant and engaging. I would go on another her walks at the drop of a hat.
