New Interview on British Myths

I did an interview recently for the fantastic Crecganford YouTube channel! You can watch it below. We had a great time chatting about the possible prehistoric beliefs behind British and Irish medieval tales: I got to share some of my speculations about the roots of British Isles folklore, and along the way we had a good stir of the cultural mix that makes our stories, covering Alan Garner, the Uffington White Horse, archaeological evidence, Welsh lake maidens and the Sussex water monsters called knuckers…!

Here’s the video – enjoy, and have a look at the rest of Crecganford’s stuff: it’s a wealth of knowledge, summarising grounded theories and academic work on the history behind myths and legends.
