About this book

Language: German with trilingual abstract in English, French, and German

From prehistory into the twentieth century, people exploited west Cornwall's downs, moors, heaths and cliffs as key parts of agricultural and subsistence systems, as places of ceremony, belief and ritual, for basic resources such as fuel and building materials and as the location of industry, communications and military sites. Goon, Hal, Cliff and Croft is the first comprehensive investigation of the human activities which have shaped west Cornwall's rough ground, and of the archaeological and other traces which these activities have left.
