Seaweed, cockles, unleavened bread and cawl are still eaten plentifully from Carmarthen to the Gower coast. They are the visible inheritance of a Celtic past - of an age stretching back to mythology.
The fiat bakestone - set on an open fire in the kitchen - was used to cook the pancakes, Welsh cakes and unleavened bread, but it is a thing of the past in all but one farmhouse.
Cockles - eaten with vinegar or in a pie - come mostly from Norfolk but for centuries the famous cocklers of Penclawdd have gathered them from the vast Llanridian sands. Seaweed - for laverbread and bacon - is now imported from Scotland but as long as anyone can remember families have picked it by hand on the seashore. Even before Roman times, people were catching Towy sewin from their frail coracles. Now there are only twelve remaining.

Two films that tell the human story of the great migration from Britain across the Atlantic 100 years ago - in the words of newspapers, letters, songs of the times and from the memories of their descendants.
2: The Awakening
Off the Atlantic coast of Canada lies Prince Edward Island , once famous for its wooden ships. During the 19th century thousands of Irish, Scots and English landed on its timbered shores. Among them was a penniless emigrant from North Devon, James Yeo. Within 30 years he was a sterling millionaire, shipbuilder and store-keeper. He became King of the Island, ' the Driver of the Government.' Hard, ruthless and feared, he established a unique two-way trade in ships and people with his homeland.
The irresistible rise of James Yeo is a classic story of the liberating effects of emigration, but also a warning to us: there are some things you cannot run away from.
