Exploration of a Drowned Landscape book.

Exploration of a Drowned Landscape book. Antony Charles Thomas, CBE, FSA is a British historian and archaeologist who was Professor of Cornish Studies at Exeter University, and the first Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies, from 1971 until his retirement in 1991. He was recognised as a Bard of the Cornish Gorseth with the name Gwas Godhyan in 1953. He is also the former President of the Council for British Archaeology.

Charles Thomas carefully documents how what we now call the the "Isles of Scilly" was a much large land mass in Megalithic and Roman times, perhaps a single island. It was also a hub for trading by sea along the Western Atlantic coast. Whether the break-up into seperate smaller islands happened because of isostatic adjustment or sea level rising remains to be seen.
