Chysauster was an Iron Age village inhabited from about 100 BC to sometime in the 3rd century AD. It was probably built by members of the Dumnonii tribe of Cornish Britons. The village is composed of eight courtyard houses, laid out in two rows of four. Outside the main grouping of houses is another stone house, and there are the remains of several outlying buildings in the surrounding fields.
The village consisted of stone-walled homesteads known as 'courtyard houses', found only on the Land's End peninsula and the Isles of Scilly. The houses line a 'village street', and each had an open central courtyard surrounded by a number of thatched rooms.

I'm unfamiliar with ancient Britain ( Dumnonii tribe is a new one for me... the name almost sounds as though it comes from Roman sources rather than Briton.)

Thanks for posting this, this reminds me how much I love this forum.
Cornwall isn't far from where I live, I'll be adding this to my summer "things to do list".
Starred and flagged my friend, Kiwi

Ding Dong mines.
I've seen The Levellers on numerous occassions and I'm going to see them twice on their current tour and at Beautiful Days.
Hopefully I'll be spending about two weeks down there if the weathers ok so I should have plenty of time to have a good look about etc.
