Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a wonderful book: curious and insightful . (Ian Mortimer, author of The Time Traveller s Guide to Medieval England). We know what happens to the body when we die, but what happens to the soul? The answer may remain a great unknown, but the question has shaped centuries of tradition, folklore and religious belief. In this vivid history of the macabre, Carl Watkins goes in search of the ancient customs, local characters and compelling tales that illuminate how people over the years have come to terms with our ultimate fate. The result is an enthralling journey into Britain s past, from medieval hauntings on the Yorkshire moors and eccentric memorials on the Cornish coast to seances in Victorian kitchens and gallows tales from a Bristol gaol. Impeccably researched and elegantly told, The Undiscovered Country ventures beyond the veil to bring the dead back to life. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099548584
