A Comprehensive range of archaeological, heritage and historical services in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset

The proposed development site for 30 houses on the North-East side of Porthleven was subject to archaeological excavation by the South West Archaeology team in May 2010. The excavations revealed traces of Bronze Age activity including several ditches and a small group of postholes in the northern section of the site. The finds from the site supported the radio-carbon dates for these features as they included several sherds of Middle/Late Bronze Age Trevisker ware.
