Artist: Buckler, John Chessell
Medium: Pencil on paper
Chun Quoit is an early neolithic tomb, standing high on barren moorland near the Iron Age hillfort Chun Castle, and resembles a giant stone mushroom. William Borlase, the 18th-century Cornish antiquarian, gives the definition of the word quoit, "from the oblate and spreading form of the upper Stone (resembling a Discus) this Monument is in Cornwall called by the name of Quoit". Chun is derived from the Cornish 'chy-an-woone', meaning house on the downs.
