Hundreds of years before the birth of the Christian era, the island that we now call Britain was known as Albion. The name recalls the legendary race of giants who once lived here, in what was seen as a ‘blessed isle’.
Today, legends and folklore preserve the mysteries of the past, stone circles and ancestral tombs dot the landscape and medieval churches recall a time when both the reverence of the Old Ones and the new dispensation of Christianity shared a place within the heart of the land and its people.
