Dartmoor has been farmed since prehistoric times due to its warm climate (not now, back then!) - what a history. There is evidence of Neolithic remains, and the largest collection of bronze-age structures in the UK. Menhirs, stone circles, clapper bridges, Dartmoor crosses and ruined villages are scattered across the moor, shaping the landscape which we see today.
Archaeological finds from all ages of history will impress even the most cynical of visitor. Medieval longhouses still stand, rail lines and factories weather the elements, a reminder of the prosperous tin mining age, and reservoirs represent the stamp of the industrial Victorian era. Real, age old Dartmoor.
