Somerset Dragons in legend and history: 21st November
One of the earliest images of Somerset dragons is a carving of a dragon being slain. Stories about these fabulous creatures go back a thousand years. Brian Wright will consider the origin of dragons, how they ‘evolved’, their symbolism and the characteristics of various types of dragon, retelling some of Somerset’s traditional dragon stories, illustrating dragons from various parts of Somerset covering several centuries.
Brian trained in archaeology and now works primarily as a historian running courses on folklore and antiques, giving talks on local historical subjects. His book “Somerset Dragons” looks at the legends of dragons that have been prevalent throughout the history of Somerset.
The Society meets on the third Wednesday each month in the Village Hall at 8pm (hot drinks and socialising from 7:30pm). Annual membership £5 including admission to talks, discussions and refreshments (visitors pay £1). All welcome.
