|Description ||More than five hundred Neolithic and Bronze Age sites above the present high water line have been excavated in the Isles of Scilly. With another thirty or so only accessible at the lowest tides, excavations of these have only been possible for short periods at low water. Normally submerged sites that have been excavated include: ten hut circles, seven cists and graves, four field wall enclosures and twelve other occupational sites and partial exposures in eroding cliffs. How many more are permanently submerged and waiting for underwater archaeologists? There are many field walls and hut circles to be seen at the lowest tide when it is still possible to walk from Samson to Bryher and from Bryher to Tresco.|
