      Harlyn Bay: Exploring Cornwall’s Largest Iron Age Cemetery

      Alexis Jordan is an archaeologist and PhD candidate from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee conducting dissertation research on Royal Cornwall Museum’s human remains collection from the site of Harlyn Bay, the largest Iron Age cemetery in Cornwall (c. 1st century BCE-1st century CE), excavated between 1900-1905.  Due to the commingling of human remains from multiple individuals and the disassociation of these remains from records of specific burials, this collection has been studied on a very limited scale. Utilizing skeletal analyses and archival research, Ms. Jordan is working to re-associate the disparate parts of this collection to better understand the people of Harlyn Bay.
