Yes Mike!

Its rather good. It gives a good continuity of the 'Cornish story', that is to say rather than specialising in a certain period, it covers everything from the forming of the land to the Eden project. By doing this you get a much clearer picture of Cornwall's place in the makeup of Britain and the world.

Actually, you get a clearer idea of why people feel as they do about Cornwall. Payton is no nationalist, but he doesnt have to be, he presents the evidence as he finds it and Cornwall's unique consisutional place in Britain is made explicit.

Right, I am off to collect my £20 from Payton now. Enjoy the read!

Ya ne ket fall.

Its pretty good although maybe a little conservative. Still miles better than anything else in the field.

Payton was and possibly still is a nationalist but he is also a professional academic and has respect for his work and position.

This book like a number of others should be in all Cornish schools and educational establishments.
