The Cornish Language: Its History and Future
Sunday, September 29, 2013, Noon–1 pm
Benjamin Bruch, a world-renowned authority on Celtic studies, will give a special presentation on the Cornish language, its history and its future at Pendarvis, a historic Cornish settlement. The 60-minute presentation is free and open to the public, and attendees will have an opportunity to register for the last in a series of Cornish language classes taught by Bruch, to be held from 2–5 pm following the free lecture.

Nestled on a rocky, wooded hillside, Pendarvis comprises six historic stone and stone-and-log cottages built by immigrant Cornish miners in the 1830s and '40s during the Wisconsin Territory's lead-mining boom. Nearby Merry Christmas Mine Hill still bears the signs of early mining activity, and a 43-acre restored prairie reveals the unspoiled wilderness found by the first arriving settlers.
