The Stations of the Sun : A History of the Ritual Year in Britain Paperback / softback


Comprehensive and engaging, this colourful study covers the whole sweep of ritual history from the earliest written records to the present day.

From May Day revels and Midsummer fires, to Harvest Home and Hallowe'en, to the twelve days of Christmas, Ronald Hutton takes us on a fascinating journey through the ritual year in Britain.

He challenges many common assumptions about the customs of the past, and debunks many myths surrounding festivals of the present, toilluminate the history of the calendar year we live by today.
