Hollow Places

An Unusual History of Land and Legend

Christopher Hadley

For centuries a curious tomb in a church on the Hertfordshire–Essex border inspired stories about the dragon-slayer Piers Shonks, whose giant bones it was believed to contain. Hadley has embarked on a journey through English history and landscape to discover the real person behind the folk hero, producing this meditation on the importance of belief and memory in the battle between storytellers and those who try to silence them.
