Folklore of Ancient Wiltshire - Katharine M Jordan

Wiltshire Library & Museum Service, 1990, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the introduction: “This study attempts first and foremost to bring together some of the written accounts of such folklore in Wiltshire, and to show how they conform to themes which occur throughout the country at ancient sites. These themes are considered generally in Chapter I, which presents the background archaeology and folklore against which the subsequent illustrative chapters are set. The secondary aim of the study is to offer some (fairly guarded) criticism and interpretation of the folklore encountered. Wherever possible this has been based on the authority of experts, and otherwise on historical, topographical and etymological evidence, leavened with common sense.”
