In "Gods in Britain" Jill Dudley travels from England to Scotland, from Cornwall to Wales in search of the pagan past, gathering myths and legends on the way. As with her earlier travel books on Greece, she continues to explore how, and even why, early Christianity took over. Her continued quest for enlightenment contrasts amusingly with her ever-tolerant husband and travelling companion, Harry, often the star of the show, who takes the Church's teachings on trust. The book has twelve chapters and includes such places as Stonehenge, Bath, Glastonbury, London, York, and Edinburgh. The book concludes with Canterbury where the author attends the Easter Resurrection service - among, as she puts it, those who have attained Olympic standards of Christian belief led by the Archbishop of Canterbury. But, as she points out, there have been resurrections of gods since the beginning of time. It is an entertaining and informative read, and has a useful Glossary at the end of gods, giants and heroes.
