This site has been funded by the HLF as part of the Moor than meets the eye project to help you discover and better understand the abundance of wildlife and archaeology that Dartmoor has to offer. Dartmoor is one of the most important sites for bronze age archaeology in western Europe and contains over 8,000 historic features reflecting human activity in the area for over 3,550 years on Dartmoor. Dartmoor is also home to some very special wildlife and contains species which are of international importance.
Dartmoor is a very special place so please help us look after it:
