COMMON MOOR Hamlet


Common Moor is a hamlet in Cornwall.    It is not too far from Siblyback Lake.
It is really convenient for Bodmin Moor. Bodmin Moor is a granite moorland. It used to be called Fowey Moor years ago.
Hunter gatherers roamed to moors approximately 10 000 years ago and it  had woods . Approximately  4500 BC to approximately 2500 BC  the moors started to be farmed.  Megalithic monuments can be found from this period. Really Bodmin Moor is an interesting place for archaeologists and for other people interested in ancient times.  There were  over 300 cairns produced in the Bronze Age and there have been discovered a large number of Bronze Age settlements on the moors. There are  barrows and circles.
A Bronze Age village has been found at Rough Tor.   A ceremonial site has been found near St Breward  which may be Bronze Age.

There used to be a  chapel at Roughtor   a long time ago.      The sccenery of the moors makes a contrast with the scenery from many other parts of Cornwall.  Some people may think the moors beautiful whereas others may not.
