The table below lists over 60 prehistoric setttlements in the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks database. The major surving settlements are covered here but there are very many which are not yet included in the listings. In total there are hundreds of settlements and thousands of hut circles on Dartmoor and it is not intended fthat this website will currently cover them all. For a more detailed discussion and a listing including photos and notes see the main page on settlements. Click on the table headers to get listings ordered by Site Name, Short Name or OS number and so on. Clicking on the Site Name will open a site page with a large photo where one is available. Clicking on OS links will list nearby sites and clicking on the NMR or HER number or Megalithic Portal link will open the relevant record in a new window. Please note that this listing started with the work of Paul Petit but has been expanded, with permission, to include sites listed on the megalithic Portal, so thanks are due to the contributors at the Megalithic Portal.
