New book from me, probably to be published in September.

 

THE PLACE-NAMES OF THE LAND'S END PENINSULA: Craig Weatherhill

210pp, A5 format

 

Penwith Press in association with the Penwith Landscape Partnership

 

This book will update, revise and expand upon P.A.S. Pool's "The Place-Names
of West Penwith" which is now 32 years old.

It will be the first to feature all known historic spellings of each name,
gives 6-figure grid references for each name, and suggests reconstructed
forms for modern use.

The book is divided into lists for each Civil Parish, and represents the
result of 40 years of research.  Many names that do not feature on any
current map are included.

 

The orthography used is SWF traditional graph.  However, final -i has been
retained for a variety of reasons.

A choice between <Bre Tiny> and <Bre Tini> (Bartinney Hill) explains one of
them.

In all of these place-names, the only differences between Trad. Graph and
"Main Form" are K/C and Hw/Wh, so that adaptation 

to a preferred orthography is a simple task.

 

A comprehensive glossary of elements found in the place-names and
field-names of the district appends the book.

However, the book does not feature field-names, due to the sheer number of
them, except where relevant to a given place-name.

Pool's "The Field-Names of West Penwith" remains the standard work on those.

 

This book will be followed, perhaps next Spring, by "The Promontory People",
a new look at the early history of the Cornish people from the initial
post-Glacial

settlement to c.1100AD.  To be published by Francis Boutle and Son, London.
