Significant developments have been made through the involvement of Neill Wood and his students from the Camborne School of Mines, University of Exeter Penryn Campus. Neill runs surveying courses for mining engineers but has a number of archaeologists on his courses, who are keen to do archaeology-related dissertations.
Neill and his students were able to use scanning equipment which was able to show that there were a number of anomalies at a depth of 1.8 to 2 m, which can be seen in the video and pictures below. A student will be undertaking dissertation work on the site over the Summer to look at the land in more detail and hopefully find more evidence of what could be the Priory.
Many thanks for Neill Wood and his students for their continued dedication to this project. Please note that the video and pictures are copyrighted to Neill Wood and Camborne School Of Mines.
