FOLKLORE ON FRIDAY - Soul of the Fields




At harvest time across northern Europe as the grain and wheat was reaped, it was traditional to make corn dollies from the stalks, with many regions having their own traditional patterns for these curious pieces of folk art.

However the corn dolly was more than just a seasonal craft pastime - it dates back to pagan times, when it was believed that the spirit of the fields needed an idol or avatar to reside in for the winter, hence the farmers made these dollies which where taken into their home to shelter the Spirit of the fields over the winter, and come spring the it was returned to the earth by ploughing the dolly into the first furrow...

The dollies in this photo are (from left to right) a Cambridgeshire Handbell, an Essex Ring Terret and a Yorkshire Spiral

FOLKLORE ON FRIDAY - Going Down To The Crossroads



In old British folklore, crossroads were more than just important landmarks for travelers - those who died and were expected not lie quiet in their graves - criminals, witches and suicides - were traditionally buried at crossroads.

The idea was that the restless spirit then would not be able to find its way home again. However if you think that possibly this might seem an ineffective method to deal with the unquiet dead - particularly if they had a good grasp of the local geography - fear not, for our ancestors thought of that too, frequently staking the corpses down to prevent them rising again!
