|Description ||The Shoreline off Great Meols near Hoylake on the Wirral at SJ231906, once in Cheshire, but now in Merseyside.
During the 19th century numerous artefacts from the Mesolithic to the medieval period were unearthed from a submerged forest on the seashore near Dove Point by the local residents of Hoylake. The discovery of several Roman coins (of Iron Age date) from Brittany and Armenia have led to speculation that Meols was an Iron Age trading port, perhaps used to export Cheshire salt to the Mediterranean. |
