Overview

Otherworlds attempts to explore the key stories which have given Cornish culture its distinctive character over the centuries and explain how they have pointed the way to new ways of understanding and transforming the world, both for individuals and for the Cornish people. This process has ranged from the aristocratic stories of Arthur and of Tristan and Iseult, to the humble folktales told in the cottages of the far west and collected by Robert Hunt in the nineteenth century. These stories still possess the power to change minds and perhaps even history.
