Cornwall, though administratively part of England, has long celebrated its cultural differences. The historic homeland of the Cornish people, as well as one of the six historical Celtic nations, Cornwall is one of Britain’s most popular tourist destinations—and one of its least understood. This compelling introductory volume traces the complexity produced by Cornwall’s unique history as a nation, region, and county all wrapped into one. Covering its evolution from independent British kingdom to culturally distinct medieval province to prominent industrial region, Cornwall is ideal reading material for anyone interested in British history, the Cornish community, and the changing field of Celtic studies.
