Piran's Round



Apparently it was originally an Iron Age/Romano-British enclosed farmstead it was converted in the medieval period to a Playing Place where miracle plays were performed. The depression in the middle (The Devil's Spoon) was the place where the Devil sprang from during the performances.

There are several "Playing places" in Cornwall.
In Cornish they are called "plen-an-gwarry"
