Travel Guide

The Wild Hunt is a portrayal of Medieval Britain, and the feudal domains of the Norman Lords in Wales. King William Rufus ruled the land and the Norman history and customs are brought vividly to life. These were tough times for a woman and they were bidden to do whatever men or the kind decided. Luckily Guyon who Judith marries is not one of your usual men of the time and there is a lot more than a typical arranged marriage of the time here – there is also feeling and understanding.

When the King is killed on the battlefield, his brother Henry takes the throne. These are very challenging times however as the King had bastard children and so the path to the throne is paved with thorns.

This is a story of the during the wars on the Welsh Marches  and the Middle Ages are rough, raw and brutally evocative.
