William Copeland Borlase
I am fascinated to read of the archaeological discovery of William Copeland Borlase (1848-1899) as described by Hilltop-Harrier. Educated at Trinity College, for anyone that's interested, in 1897 Borlase published a book entiltled 'The Dolmens of Ireland, their Distribution, Structural Characteristics and Affinities in Other Countries; together with the folk-lore attaching to them and traditions of the Irish people' (3 vols. London: Chapman & Hall, Reissued: ISBN 978-0-543-78444-5).
A small point of correction though: Borlase was Cornish (the name means 'green bank'). He was born at Castle Horneck near Penzance and was the great great grandson of Dr William Borlase (1695 -1772), the renowned Cornish antiquarian, naturalist and geologist whose archaeological work in west Cornwall made a great impression on him.
