England today enjoys a rich diversity of folk traditions, many of which can trace their beginnings back hundreds of years. They stem from every phase of antiquity and embody all the peoples who have traditionally enriched English culture. This book visits some of the best known examples, including mumming, cheese rolling, tree dressing, rushbearing, beating the bounds, flitch trials, and Wassailing, among many other customs, festivals, and traditions. Covering all aspects of English folklore and tradition, including myths, legends, traditional song and dance, games, seasonal events, and calendar customs, this volume encompasses the history of many of England’s best-loved folk traditions.
