The Sacred Ring - The Pagan Origins of British Folk Festivals and Customs, by Michael Howard
'well informed and recommended' Celtic Connections
'enjoyable and interesting...excellent sourcebook, informative, easy to read' Dragon's Brew
The old festivals & folk customs which are still celebrated all over the British Isles each year represent a survival of the ancient concept of a seasonal cycle based on the sacredness of the land & the earth. The progress of the year is marked in folk tradition by customs & festivals, recording the changing seasons. Some festivals belong to a seasonal pattern of the agricultural cycle, others record the mystical journey of the Sun across the sky, both dating back to pagan religions. Each is a unique happening which can be experienced on many different levels of understanding & enjoyment. The Sacred Ring of the year is a reminder of our ancient past & is still a potent symbol for the 20th century. ISBN 1898307 342
