'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.' (Professor Geraint H. Jenkins, Director of the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, University of Wales, Aberystwyth)

Philip Payton is Professor of Cornish and Australian Studies in the University of Exeter and Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University’s Cornwall campus.
