Subject: RE: Folklore: city that sank into the sea
I seem to remember Daphne Du Maurier (she of Rebecca/Jamaica Inn fame) in her book about Cornwall describing The Scilly Isles as The Lost Lands of Lyonesse. The rest of Lyonesse had sunk beneath the waves.
There were a load of folk tales about Lyonesse. I don't know from where she got the stories.
