Hoar rock in woodland! - St Michael's Mount, Cornwall

St Michael's Mount is called "Karrek Loos yn Koos" in Cornish, which literally means "the grey (hoar) rock in a wood". It represents a folk memory of a time before Mount's Bay was flooded, indicating a description of the mount set in woodland. Which could be true as Remains of trees have been seen at low tides following storms on the beach at Perranuthnoe. Evidence has been found that people lived on the Island during the Neolithic age (4000 BC to 2500 BC).
