Folclore córnico

O folclore córnico refírese ó conxunto de tradicións, costumes e manifestacións artísticas que desenvolvidos polo pobo córnico en Cornualles. É especialmente prolífico e rico en contos e mitos, moitos deles sobre criaturas fantásticas como xigantes, sereas, buccas e pixies (xente pequena). Aínda son incribelmente populares hoxe en día, e hai multitude de eventos celebrados en Cornualles nos que se poden atopar os droll teller[1], que son persoas que contan as historias. Algúns destes contos e lendas tiveron moito éxito de publicación, particularmente nos libros para cativos. Un exemplo é o libro Jack the Giant Killer, que ten lugar en Cornualles.

Tamén é destacábel que moitas das lendas que asocian o Rei Artur con Cornualles, sitúan o seu lugar de nacemento en Tintagel, que era a corte do seu tío Mark de Cornualles.

Pobo córnico

Os córnicos (córnico: kernowyon), son unha nación e grupo étnico nativo de Cornualles, e unha realidade nacional recoñecida no Reino Unido. As súas orixes remóntanse ós antigos britanos que habitaron o sur o centro de Gran Bretaña antes da conquista romana de Britania. Moitos córnicos continúan a manter unha identidade separada á inglesa ou británica.
