A REPORT on Cornish Heritage from 1508 to 2008

The CSP has produced a Report on how the Charter of Pardon 1508 led to the Cornish Mining World Heritage status being awarded by UNESCO. The Report quotes many of the passages from “The Cornish Mining World Heritage Nomination Document”, (marked WHD) approved by Cornwall County Council, English Heritage, the British government and UNESCO. Unfortunately, the WHD was a limited edition and is now only available at www.cornish-mining.org.uk When re-assembled from the WHD format for the description of the ten World Heritage sites, into a Cornwall wide Cornish heritage evolution Report, the WHD entries can be seen to confirm an ancient and modern separate Cornish identity and culture. Why then, has the documentary recognition of Cornish identity in the WHD, made by the Cornwall Council, English Heritage and the British government in order to secure acceptance as World Heritage by the United Nations, not since been adopted as official government policy? Commentaries by the Cornish Stannary Parliament are included under the heading Authenticity Assessment, (marked AA). A full REPORT is available from www.cornish-heritage.net at £5.00 each plus p & p.

 Random Information. 
 An Gof and Flamank were executed on 27th June 1497 and suffered the traitor's fate of being hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn. Audley was beheaded on the 28th June at Tower Hill. Their heads were displayed on pike-staffs ("gibbeted") on London Bridge. An Gof is recorded to have said before his execution that he should have "a name perpetual and a fame permanent and immortal". Thomas Flamank was quoted as saying "Speak the truth and only then can you be free of your chains".
