This new, revised and updated edition of Cornovia is eagerly awaited by those many people who have an interest in Cornwall’s ancient past. Combining as it does the work first published in two volumes (Cornovia and its sister work Belerion), this new book is one of the most complete guides to individual historic sites to be found in Cornwall and Scilly, and is ideally suited to those wishing to visit the sites themselves.

This new edition explores almost 250 sites, with an explanation of each, along with detailed maps, plans and colour photographs specially prepared for this edition.

The original books quickly became standard works of their kind, being reprinted and remaining in print for almost two decades. Here the author has brought Cornovia into the 21st century.

Craig Weatherhill is an author, historian, novelist, artist and an authority on the Cornish language. He worked for many years as a planning officer for West Penwith and has undertaken a number of surveys for the Cornwall Archaeological Unit, among other bodies. He lives near St Just and plays an active part in many activities supporting the Celtic revival of Cornwall and its people.

Imprint: Halsgrove. ISBN 978 1 84114 748 2, hardback, 214x230mm, 160 pages. Published April 2009. Reprinted April 2011.

The Book of St Day by Joseph Mills and Paul Annear charts the complex story of the remarkable community from its humble beginnings, through its heady days at the centre of the world's copper-mining industry in the 1800s, to its endurance in the face of a collapsing industry and its final emergence as a close knit community determined to thrive, in times of both hardship and poverty, happiness and plenty.
