    Drowned Cities, Lost Lands...

    Drowned Cities, Lost Lands and Sunken Kingdoms...here we take a look at some of the myths surrounding water, flooding and cities and kingdoms lost to it. Covering Brittany, Wales and Cornwall and to a lesser extent Scotland and Ireland it is clear that these myths have a trace of folk memory to them, also religious and moral undertones.

Fantastic

Really enjoying this podcast. Love Sian’s enthusiasm and infectious enjoyment of the stories. Also I love her crazy laugh and the way she heads off on tangents.
Oh and the music is fine and not too loud.

Would’ve loved to have listened to this but found the background music extremely off putting. Such a shame.
