  • Boleigh, Cornwall
    Boleigh, Cornwall
    Episode 1
    Prehistoric Fougou Named after the Cornish word meaning 'cave', fogous are remarkable prehistoric monuments consisting of a stone lined passage roofed with massive capstones. Many also have side tunnels dug into the natural subsoil and a few have evidence of circular underground chambers. They are found only in the extreme west of Cornwall, mainly on the Land's End and Lizard peninsulas and were always built within and beneath settlement sites. Evidence shows that they were built over two thousand years ago during the later Iron Age (400BC-AD43) and have similarities with underground monuments known as 'souterrains', which are broadly contemporary but are found in other parts of Britain and Ireland.moreless
