Folklore has carried mythical creatures, fantastical knights and formidable spirits down through the generations. From Arthurian legends to monsters, sprites and faeries, this book explores the magical tales that have sprung from Britain and Ireland. As well as famous stories and lesser-known tales, discover modern customs and traditions grounded in folklore, such as May Day and Halloween; the deep connection between folklore and nature; and the historical context surrounding folklore and the insight it gives us into the beliefs people once held.
