Would you like to become an Ancient Sites Archaeological Monitor? Penwith’s Ancient Sites are always under pressures of various kinds. We need local people to keep an eye on the sites, and report back to their condition and any changes affecting them. Would you be prepared to ‘Adopt-a-Site’ locally, and visit it from time to time to complete a simple Monitoring form? Your commitment will greatly help in preserving our ancient sites.
