Comments[edit]

How does filling in a fogou under archaeological supervision to preserve it and stop it from caving in on the public constitute negligent damage? The article implies that the entire village was destroyed by evil government agencies. It is still open to the public. The fogou was covered because it was dangerous- sure, this is not a strong argument and yes it could have been rebuilt using different materials but then it would have been a different site. adamsan

Controversy over the site[edit]

Why was this text removed ? - please discuss before removing further text.

In 1999 there was some controversy regarding this site and others under the care of the English Heritage organisation. The Cornish Stannary Parliament wrote to English Heritage asking them to remove all signs bearing their name from Cornish sites by July 1999 as they regard the ancient sites as Cornish heritage, not English. Over eleven months eighteen signs were removed by members of the Cornish Stannary and a letter was sent to English Heritage saying "The signs have been confiscated and held as evidence of English cultural aggression in Cornwall. Such racially motivated signs are deeply offensive and cause distress to many Cornish people".

Roman site[edit]

Although the site was in existence throughout the Roman period, it was inhabited by the Celtic tribe, not the Romans. Should it have the "Romans in Cornwall" category? MortimerCat 06:34, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

No. I've removed it now. Ghmyrtle (talk) 09:48, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
