Explore the myths and legends of England
The mythology of England is as old as the land itself, rich in symbolism and full of quests, heroic derring-do, ghosts, witches, romantic heroines, and noble outlaws. Who hasn't heard of the master sorcerer Merlin, Robin Hood and his merry men, or the legendary monster Grendel?
Beginning with the great Anglo-Saxon epic Beowulf, English Myths explores the early legends of post-Roman England, many of which blend history and fantasy. This engaging book goes on to examine the rich seam of Arthurian and romantic legends first told in the medieval era, before looking at English folk heroes and the beasts that have haunted the land.
