Notes

An Iron Age promontory fort that is located on Porth Island has evidence for Iron mining. When excavated in 1939, evidence for ironstone mining was found in the stratigraphy and spoil heaps were also said to be present. It seems that the production of metals has been occurring over many prehistoric periods at this site but is largely undated and could have continued into the Roman period. Unfortunately the excavations were halted by the start of World War II and the results never published.
