Storming The Walls, Chysauster Ancient Village, Cornwall

Stormy skies above the walls at Chysauster Ancient Village, Cornwall. These are the remains of a Celtic village of courtyard houses which was occupied by the Dumnonii tribe between around 100 BC and 400 AD, during the Roman occupation of Britain. It appears to have been an agricultural settlement with eight stone dwellings, arranged in pairs along a street. Small chambers lead off from the main courtyards of each house which served as working and living areas. The site is now managed by English Heritage.
