Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 447: `at a meeting of roads in the middle of the village'.

Okasha/1993, 185, first recorded as standing `upright in the High-way, where two Lanes meet, in the Parish of Mawgan, in Meneag, not a quarter of a Mile from the Parish-Church'.

Preston-Jones/1992, 120--121, discusses the inner and outer enclosures at Mawgan, with a plan of the site showing the location of the stone, and argues that it is likely to be a lann of at least seventh-century date.

Thomas/1994, 316--317, `Ann Preston-Jones has shown that Mawgan in Meneage, where the c. 600 memorial of Cnegumi could stand at a way-in through an outer enclosure stretching far around the parish churchyard, is a likely candidate.' Thomas goes on to state that that despite lack of place-name evidence Mawgan is likely to be a lann.
