Amy Jeffs

Wild: Tales from Early Medieval Britain

Hay Festival 2023, 

Evoking an atmospheric world of whales, wolves, caves, cuckoos and reeds, in Wild Amy Jeffs journeys both on foot and through medieval texts to offer an insight into a world at once distant and profoundly close to home. She hauntingly retells venerable tales and the places where she finds them reflected in Britain today, from the bat-haunted darkness of ancient barrows to the cacophony of a pub wassail, accompanied by her original wood engravings. Jeffs is an art historian and artist and worked in the British Library’s department of Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern manuscripts.
