'...essential reading for any 'student of Cornwall''
(Cornish Forefathers Society April 1999)
'Cornish Studies provides a fresh, accessible and illuminating insight into the many-sided history and culture of Cornwall. 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.'
