| I grew up in Suffolk on the east coast of England, now for anyone that knows it that should be enough to explain my interest in all things mystical. For anyone that doesn't well it starts with the fact that Suffolk is old... very old and countless invasions have left a mark of some sort on almost every town, village and hamlet. You don't have to walk very far to see a wealth of pagan symbols, Norse markers and ogham writing on old stones. Pull back any ivy on a stone wall and under it will be a bust of The Green Man. |
It is no surprise that growing up somewhere that drips with history and still to this day whole villages will indulge in events thought pagan will spark a keen interest in such things. Be it something like the May Pole or dancing about in orchards, singing and ringing bells for the health of the trees, finding mummified cats bricked into the walls of almost every old home and iron cutlery under doorsteps.
