31/3 Dartmoor’s Deep Past

Exploring Dartmoor’s deep past – ancient ceremony, settlement and the Ice Age.


Overview

Exploring Dartmoor’s deep past – ancient ceremony, settlement and the Ice Age.

An approximately 12km walk, starting from The Warren House Inn. We will head out into a corner of the moor with a sense of remoteness and solitude and above all a sense of the long periods of time that have shaped Dartmoor. Along the way we will discover bronze age settlement, standing stones and a glimpse of the ice-age. We will look at how humans have shaped the landscape and have a tantalising glimpse at an older mystery with a modern answer- did Dartmoor have its own glaciers?
