It draws on folklore, tradition and superstition, and is packed with amusing anecdotes and historical extracts which illuminate the beliefs and knowledge of our ancestors.

Following in the footsteps of Lost Crafts , Lost Lore is a beautiful book that will once more immerse you in the pleasures of the past.
