Carn Brea : Brief History and Guide by Michael Tangye

£4.99

Product description

This softback book, written and illustrated by Michael Tangye, outlines and describes the history of Carn Brea (which means rocky hill) near Redruth in Cornwall. It includes maps, photos and drawings of what settlements might have look like, for example. The foreword states: Carn Brea can be likened to an island, - providing within its limited compass a wide field of interests, from archaeology and folklore to military and industrial relics. All these features although overshadowed in importance by the Neolithic settlement at its summit, combine to form a continuous and fascinating history of the hill over a period of 500o years. The softback book, though basically sound, is somewhat dirty and stained, and the covers a bit bent.
