This beautiful booklet is the third in our Seeking the Green Pathways Series (the other two being Magical Nature Walks and A Little Book of Inspirations). Its purpose is to provide readers with a firm base for discovering more about the Anglo-Saxons. Don’t be fooled because it’s a booklet and not a book – it is overflowing with information (even references and a bibliography.)
One of the things that always bothered Tylluan about Anglo-Saxon text books is that one moment they were talking about Tacitus (Roman) then Anglo-Saxons and finally Snorri Sturluson (much later, and Icelandic.) In this booklet Tylluan deals with many of the common confusions, such as why are Freyr, Ing and Nerthus often spoken about as though they were identical?
There is information on many of the well known deities including Woden and Thunor, along with lesser known ones, such as Geat and Gefion of the Plough. There is also a wealth of information about Anglo-Saxon words for various types of witchcraft and magic, how gods, shrines and groves turn up in place names, plus what to look for in Christianised charms.
This small but informative booklet makes a great starting point for anyone wishing to study Anglo-Saxon heathenism, and would also make a wonderful addition to Tylluan’s earlier book, The Magical World of the Anglo-Saxons.
Don’t forget that this book can be autographed and/or inscribed by Tylluan! Please let us know at the checkout what you would like written inside the book for you or the intended recipient!
