Chris Bond - Antiquarian Notes on the Prehistory of Cornwall

Antiquarian Notes on the Prehistory of Cornwall

By Chris Bond


This is the first volume in a series dedicated to reproducing some of the long-forgotten articles from historical journals relating to Cornwall’s illustrious and ancient past. The articles themselves are taken from a variety of publications, both local and national, and from a wide span of time. To have these valuable sources in a set of compact volumes makes not only for an interesting read, but also a useful tool for reference.

Greig (Antiquarian and Topographical Cabinet, 1808); The Hurlers (Light From the West, 1833); Some Account of the Opening of a Barrow near Newquay by The Rev.
