Re: Duke Charles's house of cards

Interesting... from the this is Cornwall link - > the 1753 Cornish Stannary Convocation, called by the Duke of Cornwall, [which] re-enacted its entire body of legislation, thereby asserting its sovereignty. I didn't realise this... Is this where the wealth of Cornish law come from, I assume that rec...

Re: Impeach the Duke

Ok maybe not the no one will notice, but what about the we'll ignore the Cornish people (again) and just do it anyway...
NO normal people will care.

Re: Domesday Trebah... Marhak?

I shall attempt to put it to them nicely... next time I'm there, as long as your sure it isn't in Domesday.

I did look myself on Domesday online, and found nothing mentioned about it, but I'm unsure of the conciseness of that site?
Could it be in the Exeter domesday or the domesday source material?

Domesday Trebah... Marhak?

Question for Marhak I saw in Trebah the other day, a sign that said the earliest recording was in the Domesday, as Trebaya... I wondered if you could corroborate this and tell me if this is the same as the Trebah (Treverybow 1316, Trewribou 1326), Treverybow, (?meaning) you write about in your Corni...

Cornish tin and the Duchy?

I was wondering if anyone knew what (if any) impact the Duchy of Cornwall had on Cornish tin mining in modern times (the last century say) and what if any involvement would the duke have on mining operations at South Crofty now and in the (hopeful) future? OR any other possible mine re-openings?

Re: Menu translation help

Nag ov! But I think I've worked it out... looking at plenty of pictures of meat cuts, and dictionary references... Loin is the whole mid section, from upper thighs to navel... mainly the sides. The confusion with genitalia seems to come from the fact that they're in the portion classed as the loin....

Re: Menu translation help

Loin... Clun as far as I can distinguish is the thighs,( or possibly rump?) with Pe(d)nclun the hip...
Unless Clun is now used as Loin in the lower back cut off meat sense?
