How does the past relate to the present?
Why are particular places remembered through time?
What is the role of landscape in the construction of identity?
This book investigates these questions in relation to Cornwall. It brings together a team of scholars drawn from a range of disciplines including archaeology, history, literature and media studies.
Memory, Place and Identity seeks to develop the field of Cornish and Celtic Studies by engaging with wider trends in both Public History and Cultural Memory.
Specific topics covered include the prehistoric cliff castles of West Penwith, language and identity in Mousehole, nineteenth century politics in Truro, cultural narratives of surfing at Newquay and border identity in the Tamar Valley.
