Giles will be focussing upon the mythology, folklore and natural history of two maligned groups of animals, and is sure to excite your curiosity with tales of ‘tick-toads’, toad-men and toad-bones, toads in Romany folklore, witches’ familiars, crows in Greek mythology, the corvid manifestations of the Morrigan, and the magical significance of some other corvids; choughs, jays, jackdaws and rooks.
