    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. A period that was not a ‘dark age’ for Cornwall, but something of a golden age, when ‘Cornubia’, with its centre at Tintagel, exerted control over Devon and parts of Somerset, and established colonies in Brittany.
