Artist's Description

“Cornwall is a Celtic region – with a background similar to the Welsh, Scots and Irish and also the Breton (in north-western France). A fiercely independent people, the Cornish value their heritage and actively seek to preserve all that is best of it. Through its Celtic roots, Cornwall had its own language – similar to Welsh and Gaelic but quite distinct from the Saxon languages which became today’s English. The Cornish language continued in use long after the end of the Cornish Kingdom, through the Middle Ages, and was last spoken regularly in the late 1700s. It is still spoken today in the form of revived Cornish.

In 1595, Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole were invaded, sacked and burned by a Spanish raiding fleet in the aftermath of their ill-fated Armada and only a few Medieval and Tudor buildings survived this experience. While these invaders were soon despatched, this event marked the last time England was ever invaded by hostile forces.
