Britain’s creation myths may have fallen out of modern consciousness but there are possible clues in our stories, traditions, and landscapes. In this talk with Dartmoor’s Daughter, Emma Cunis, explores the traditions of indigenous cultures reaching back thousands of years.
Take an archaeological and phenomenological journey using the extraordinary Dartmoor landscape as inspiration. Join Emma to consider the prehistoric stone circles, rows, astronomical alignments, and encultured tors; beautiful ancient tracks; local legends, songs and stories; serpent lines; as well as some of the traditions kept alive today such as Beating the Bounds.
What might we learn from other peoples and cultures to help us remember or relearn the mysteries of our monuments and people?
