New Release: Weird Wessex

Weird WessexJust out from Fortean Words – Weird Wessex: A Tourist Guide to 100 Strange and Unusual Sights by Paul Jackson and Andrew May:

At its height, the Saxon kingdom of Wessex sprawled across Southern England, encompassing Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset, Somerset and parts of Devon and Berkshire. Even before the Saxons arrived the area had a reputation as a weird place, with Stonehenge and its Druids, Glastonbury and the Holy Grail, the bizarre chalk figure of the Cerne Giant and the reputed location of King Arthur’s Camelot. In more recent times the tradition of weirdness has continued, with flying saucers sighted over Warminster, intricate Crop Circles popping up around Alton Barnes and hordes of spaced-out hippies converging on the mystical hubs of Glastonbury and Totnes. This book is a tourist guide with a difference. It describes 100 of the weirdest sights in Wessex, ranging from world-famous places like Glastonbury and Stonehenge to hidden oddities that may even surprise the locals. Divided into ten thematic chapters, it is lavishly illustrated with over 200 full-colour photographs.

You can get your copy of Weird Wessex from Amazon, either as a trade paperback or Kindle ebook:

.. and watch this space for a SPECIAL OFFER in the very near future – discounted copies of the book signed by both authors!
