Hundreds of people flocked to an ancient monument on Bodmin Moor at the weekend as archaeologists revealed what they believe to be a "unique" stone pathway.
The 4,000-year-old feature, which has been uncovered for the first time in 75 years, has attracted enormous interest across the region.
A team from Cornwall's Historic Environment department has spent the past week atthe Hurlers stone circles near Minions carefully uncovering a monument believed to be the only one of its kind in the British Isles. Known variously as a "stone pavement" or "crystal causeway", experts are now certain the 4ft wide pathway linking two circles is an integral part of the site's ceremonial architecture.
First excavated in 1938 by the Ministry of Works, under the direction of the grandly titled Charles Kenneth Croft Andrew and C A Ralegh Radford, it was at that time described as a "processional pathway".
Anyone who would like to see one of Cornwall's most intriguing historical treasures before it is reburied will need to be quick because it is due to be reburied tomorrow.
