Cornish Archive Plans
3:28pm 10th April 2012
Plans to bring home the Cornish equivalent of the Elgin marbles take a step closer.
Officials have just announced a £10 million archive centre could be built in St Austell, Hayle or Redruth.
Spokesperson Deborah Tritton is hoping they can win the funding they need: "There are some wonderful documents relating to Cornwall really across the world, so I think we'd be wanting to work with partners around projects which would encourage access to them within Cornwall.
"You have records relating to the Cornish overseas in America, South America and Australia, but also in places around the UK like London and Wales".
