Fly through Cornwall's past


Exploring Time From The Sky


Fly through the past by viewing our interactive map of Cornwall’s historic and prehistoric landscape. The map we have painstakingly drawn over the last twelve years is now available on Cornwall County Council’s on line GIS (Geographical Information System).


Pan through the county from east to west or from north to south. Or zoom in on where you live to discover the archaeology of your area.


Use the point information button to provide a brief description of each feature on the map. Further explanation can be found in English Heritage’s Thesaurus of archaeological terms.


To better appreciate Cornwall’s remarkable heritage why not visit some of the sites we have mapped? Public rights of way are shown on the on line GIS so you can see at a glance which sites are accessible. A selection of the most impressive monuments is featured in our Access to Monuments website.
