A full detailed look at the living traditions, festivals, events and memories of events and associated sites and sights of Old England. Jeryy is an expert in the field and has written numerous articles for many years for a wide range of publications as well as running and editing Merry Meet magazine a pillar of the Folklore Society in England. Ranging across the whole country and with over 100 illustrations and photos The roots of modern Paganism are nourished by the soil of Old England whose inherently pagan past has always lain barely hidden beneath the surface. This rich heritage is constantly being mined by archaeologists and folklorists. Here we are shown some of the stranger aspects of folklore, music, tradition, myth and legend that have survived in the Sacred Landscape of England.

.".. a lovely invocation of spirit of place." -- Ronald Hutton "Jerry Bird's voice is that of a writer for whom every echo of paganism is a joy. The tone of the essays is one of delight and pleasure in the evidence of pagan beliefs written in the landscape, preserved in song, carved in church roof bosses or performed as a horn dance." -- Current Archaeology ..". a lovely invocation of spirit of place." -- Ronald Hutton
