Well beyond stone shapes the best case i can make for it having a neolithic/bronze age date is i once spent over a week walking from one neolithic/Bronze age site to the next on Bodmin moor and all i can say is it fitted in perfectly with everywhere else of a neolithic/bronze age date even though it was very different to anywhere else around, if i had to put forward my thoughts on what it is, i'd go for one hell of a big mortuary enclosure, a place were the bodies of the dead were left for the animals and birds to help in the defleshing process ready for the bones to be interred or cremated at one of the nearby barrows after been taken for rituals at the stone circles beforehand, it's good for the mind to speculate [or remember, whichever you choose].
