Join us for the Library's Historical Discussion Group, where we will be looking at forgotten folklore from around the globe.

Beginning with the origin stories of the British Isles, we delve into the wild and wonderful world of folklore. We will share our favourite forgotten myths, legends and superstitions, touch upon the origins of some of the world’s oldest fairy-tales, and explore some lesser known and forgotten folklore from across the continents.

A Zoom link will be sent out to those who have registered via Eventbrite, along with some additional sources to look at before the event.
