This is Lanyon Quoit. The legend has it that King Arthur used the stone top as a dining table just before his last battle. The Stones are originally part of a bronze age burial structure over which the earth and turf covering have eroded.

Many of these burial sites have legends relating to giants. There often seems to be a certain amount of truth connected to these stories, as bones are often found indicating the deceased were well over seven foot in height.


Where do we suppose these 'giants' came from?
