In Cornwall’s First Golden Age, Bernard Deacon gives us a groundbreaking interpretation of the history of Cornwall between the departure of the Romans and the arrival of the Normans.

Set around the villages, lanes and works of Clemo’s native china clay country in the 1930s, the stories of A Proper Mizz-Maze record the landscape, culture and an underrepresented language form, and they do it in an attractively light-hearted way.

During the First World War, June 1915 to December 1919, Gertrude Powicke spent time with the Society of Friends for their relief efforts in France, then Poland, working among the civilian victims of war.
