Folklore Society Review

From Runes to Ruins was nominated for the Folklore Society's non-print media award 2014. The judges released the following statement.

"This very professionally produced film by Tom Rowsell and Jamie Roper is a lengthy documentary following Rowsell’s personal investigation, starting with an ancient earthen burial mound remembered from his childhood. He explores Anglo-Saxon haunted barrows and pagan shrines to the dead; seeks evidence for roots of a pagan past by consultations with neo-pagans and Viking re-enactors, and finds healing gods and ancient cultures in old chronicles."
