West Penwith: ancient sites and alignments

Map showing the ancient sites of the Land's End peninsula, the Isles of Scilly, the Lizard and 'East Penwith', together with known alignments in the area. These sites date from 700 to 5,000 years ago - the Medieval to the Megalithic periods.

This map incorporates the collected work of many researchers over at least four decades, as recorded in the pages of Meyn Mamvro, and on the list of Alignments.. Hopefully the work of further researchers will be added in due course.

This is a work in progress, started in early December 2014. It is as yet unfinished, though it is now ready for public viewing and detailed peer review. You're welcome to take a look!
