Cornish Forefathers Society
“...essential reading for any ’student of Cornwall’” –Cornish Forefathers Society, April 1999

The interdisciplinary and comparative approach encouraged by the editor, Philip Payton, has proved particularly rewarding and has deepened our understanding of Celtic societies in general.” –Professor Geraint H. Jenkins, Director of the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, University of Wales, Aberystwyth
