If you are a student of folklore, this is a great book for you. Legendary Britain is a lavishly illustrated journey to the mythical and magical places that abound in the British Isles. Stewart and Matthews don't stop with the obvious, like King Arthur and Robin Hood, although there certainly is plenty of info about them here. The best part about this book is the coverage of less famous places and characters, the green men, King Bladud, Wayland Smithy, and Dragon Hll, to name but a few. Even if you aren't all that into folklore, this is an engrossing read, with all the old stories colorfully told. Great fun, and well researched.
