St. Michael's Mount

Natural Rock Feature


The handy little book Cornwall's Archaeological Heritage (ISBN 090629452-5) gives a brief description of the Mount:
The Mount is likely to be Ictus, the Iron Age tin trading station recorded by Diodorus Siculus. Recent discoveries of a copper ingot and amphora sherds (5th-6th centuries AD) show it was important in the Post Roman period - a south coast Tintagel Castle.
