Glasney was not sold off and dismantled at the time of the dissolution  
of the monasteries.  This was done at the time of the Prayer Book  
Uprising.  It was almost as if the authorities wanted to wipe the  
Cornish and their language off the face of the earth.  No wonder there  
was an uprising.  I refuse to call a fight for human rights a rebellion.
