This show was 42nd in the global interview chart.
This week, I’m talking to the wonderful Dr Ceri Houlbrook.
Ceri is an Early Career Researcher in Folklore and History at the University of Hertfordshire. Her main interests are British folklore and contemporary ritual practices, from wishing-wells to love-locks. She has co-edited a volume on The Materiality of Magic: An artefactual investigation into ritual practices and popular beliefs, is soon to publish a co-edited volume on British and Irish fairy-lore, entitled Magical Folk, and is currently writing a book on the folklore of coin-trees, The Roots of a Ritual.
I’ll be talking to Ceri about coin-trees, love-locks and folklore – and about Boggart Hole Clough too. And, of course, Ceri will be sharing her selections for this week’s Apocalypse Books.
