In “Stations of the Sun” and “The Triumph of the Moon”, Ronald Hutton established himself as a leading authority on the historian of Paganism. His wealth of unusual knowledge, complemented by a deep and sympathetic understanding of past and present beliefs that are often dismissed as strange or marginal, and an ability to write lucidly and wittily, gives his work a unique flavour.
The essays which make up “Witches, Druids and King Arthur” cover elegantly and entertainingly a wide range of beliefs, myths and practices.
