Myths and Legends

The World is rich in myths, folktales and legends. Almost every city, town and village in Britain has its own special story, be it a Celtic legend, Dark Age mystery, strange happening or fable.

Remember the stories you heard again and again when you were little? Humpty Dumpty, Sleeping Beauty, Babes in the Wood? If you ask your parents or grandparents, they will probably tell you that they heard the same stories when they were young. And don't be surprised if, one day in the future, you find yourself telling the same stories to your children!

Just like those stories, the tales on this site have been told over and over again. Many are very old and date back centuries, but a few come from only a short time ago. You see, a story doesn't have to be old to be a myth...but most of them are!
