Cornish Studies

This special digital research project, supported by generous grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Institute of Cornish Studies respectively, have been undertaken by postgraduate fellows and alumni from the University of Exeter’s Penryn campus as Graduate Research Associates.

Due to the nature of the research project, all archives used are in collaboration and thus the following publications published reflect the fluidity of research deriving from our selected area: Maritime Churches.

Publication of these projects on the web allows the information to reach the widest possible audience and makes the material available for further research.

A number of heritage organisations have welcomed the project’s ethos and supported activities generously.
