The Wild Hunt appears in many forms across folklore, manifesting both as the furious horde and as psychopomps, or 'soul guides' to the dead.  Learn about this multifaceted folkloric archetype, including the myths  of Arawn, Gwyn ap Nudd and and Herne the Hunter. Consider the differences between leaders of the Wild Hunt portrayed as gods and those seen as cursed humans, as well as learn ways to connect with and honour this powerful force.


About the Presenter:
Helen JR Bruce is an author, folklorist and illustrator based in Somerset. Inspired by the rich heritage of British folklore, she collides ancient tales with the modern landscape, inviting readers into the liminal space between story and reality. A lifelong love of Dartmoor populates her writing with witches, Wisht Hounds and the Wild Hunt, while her childhood home of Essex brings the padding paws of Black Shuck and other spectral black dogs. She has published two books in her 'Heat of the Hunt' trilogy, written for numerous magazine and University journals, plus had her short story 'Fenland' recorded for the British Library Sound Archives.
