A Companion to the Folklore, Myths & Customs of Britain

Marc Alexander

“Britain’s rich and varied folklore, legends and beliefs provide a unique insight into the island’s turbulent history. Every invader, refugee or settler has helped contribute some new element or twist to the complex pattern of our national heritage, and new myths are still in the making. This fully illustrated volume provides a comprehensive A-Z companion to legends and customs in England, Scotland, Wales, covering everything from witchcraft, ghosts and fairies to legendary figures, standing stones and mythical creatures. At the end of the book there is a fully up-to-date Folk Custom Calendar of events being held throughout the year, plus a substantial list of further reading.

With over 1000 entries and over 200 colour and black and white illustrations, this is the most comprehensive guide yet to British folklore, myths and legends. It includes information on related places of interest and is essential reading for anyone intrigued by the colourful heritage of this corner of the world.”
