Description

Throughout the length and breadth of Britain, ancient tribes, druids, Celtic Saints, Medieval Knights and 18th century landowners have left future generations a wealth of extroadinary sights, scapes and structures. Homer Syke's superb and evocative photographs record these marvels in full colour while his informative text relates their history, and the legends and folktales that surround them - dancing maidens and unfortunate princes turned to stone in Devon and Cornwall, water made holy by the Gilded skull of Saint Teilo in Wales, and the witch who milked the Giant cow in Mitchells fold, Shropshire.
