Amy Jeffs talks to Julia Wheeler


Hay Festival 2022, 

Soaked in rain and old magic, Storyland is the history of Britain through medieval eyes. Grounded in meticulous research by art historian Amy Jeffs, related as fiction, it is filled with places we know, and can still visit, and characters half-remembered: Lear in Leicester, Merlin in Stonehenge, Grim in Grimsby, St Columba on the River Ness. Each episode is illustrated with an original linocut print by the author. This landmark publication rooted deep in the ancient British landscape will delight lovers of history, art, myth and stories. The author talks to journalist Julia Wheeler.
