Myths and Legends Series: Y Tylwyth Teg
£120.00 – £128.00
Y Tylwyth Teg, which means ‘fair family’, is the name for the ‘fairy folk’ who live underground or near water. They are said to have fair hair and to dance and make fairy rings. But there is a more sinister side, covet golden-haired human children. They kidnap them, leaving changelings in their place. They give gifts to those they like, but these gifts are taken away if the fairies are spoken about. Fairy maidens can marry human men but they must be careful never to touch iron or they will vanish back to fairyland never to be seen by their husbands again.
