This is the first book from the History Press’s series on British Folk Tales that I have read – and I was not disappointed!

Huldredrøm: Dream of the Hid-Folk by Christopher R. Knutson

Knutson's romantic tale of trolls, changelings and Norwegian folk high up in the Rondane mountains is a beautiful device for recording some of the ancient folklore of the region.

Obituary: Derek “Crusty” Woodley

Derek had a rare satisfaction with his position in life – alongside a wry sense of humour that is only found in a good old Suffolk boy.
