Description - West Britons by Mark Stoyle

"West Britons" provides a fresh interpretation of the bloodiest, most devastating years in Cornwall's history and a new perspective on the history of the far South West of Britain. The book explores the unprecedented series of rebellions which took place in Cornwall between 1497 and 1648, traces the connections which existed between those revolts and the contemporary Cornish perception of themselves as a separate "people", and argues that Cornish history must be viewed within a "British", rather than a purely English context. The book should prove useful to those engaged in the contemporary political and historical debate over "Britishness". It also includes transcriptions of a number of previously unpublished documents, useful to teachers and their students, and a list of some 300 Cornish Royalist officers, of special interest to Civil War enthusiasts and genealogists.
