This copper pendant is etched with the symbol of the Celtic Nation, Cornwall.
Cornwall has historically, culturally, and linguistically had closer ties to the Celtic lands of Wales, Brittany, and Ireland. Up until the 16th and 17th centuries, Cornish was the main language spoken by its inhabitants, but as the years passed and huge change came to the county, the language started to die out. The Celtic tribes who inhabited what is known as Cornwall were called the Dumnonii and Cornovii. These tribes lived in Cornwall between the Iron Age and the Post-Roman period.
