Today I spoke to BBC Radio Suffolk’s Amy Nomvula on the Lesley Dolphin Show (listen from 29:30) about Suffolk’s folklore of fairies and my new book on the subject, Suffolk Fairylore. Amy asked me how traditional ideas about fairies differ from modern stereotypes, as well as about the origins of fairylore in Suffolk and the ways in which fairy beliefs have changed over time. I spoke about my inspirations for writing the book, the challenges of gathering folklore about fairies, and the lingering influence of fairy beliefs into the twentieth century.
