  • Gloucestershire Folk Tales by Anthony Nanson

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

  • Bag of Jewels by Sarah Percival

    The title of this CD could not be more apt – it truly is a little gem! Sarah Perceval has carefully selected nine traditional tales from countries such as Africa and Korea to illustrate nine virtuous qualities

  • 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.

    So, Vortigern, who he? There can be few people in this septic isle who don’t know something of the legendary exploits of King Arthur or the derring-do of Robin Hood and his merry men.

    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.
