  • They shall land on the stone of Merlin
     
    Who shall burn Paul, Penzance and Newlyn
     
    This prophecy, uttered by the wizard Merlin, was known by the Cornish for centuries.  They knew, therefore, that they could do nothing to prevent the Spanish forces landing on Merlin Rock, off Mousehole, on the morning of 23rd July 1595. Now Craig Weatherhill has brought together all the information from sources as diverse as Richard Carew's 1602 A Survey of Cornwall to the  Spanish commander's report to King Philip II of Spain.  A report which only came to light in the 1980s.
     
    "As a distinguished expert on Cornish archaeology, topography and place-names, Craig Weatherhill is able to provide the reader with the precision of detail that would go unnoticed in other accounts."  Alan M. Kent   Open University and University of A Coruña
