This book is an exploration of the myths and customs which have coloured everyday life in Britain for centuries, and which continue to affect our culture into the 1990s and beyond. From Widecombe Fair to motorcycle etiquette, from homeopathic cures to traditional nicknames, it is a tribute to the wealth of Britain's folk heritage, past and present.
