From the rear side cover: The ancient Cornish people, tucked away on a long, tapering peninsula atthe extreme bottom left-hand corner of Britain, are perhaps the island's least understood ethnicity. It came as a surprise to many when in 2014 they were officially designated as a protected national minority by the UK Government and the Council of Europe. The Promontory People tells their story as it has never been told before. Using up-to-date archaeological, archaeo-linguistic and genetic research Craig Weatherhill describes the history ofthe Cornish people from the earliest times to the Norman period and places Cornwall in the context of its wider relationships with the rest of Britain and Europe.
The condition of the book is generally very good. The covers are clean and bright, the spine is tight and intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
