Cornish Archaeology

Cornwall is extremely rich in ancient monuments and antiquities of all sorts.  One of the most conspicuous features of the Cornish countryside are the stone crosses, which cannot be seen anywhere else in the country in such numbers or varieties.  

There are over four hundred complete stone crosses standing in the county and at least another two hundred fragments, with an increasing number of modern replicas.
