There’s a new article from me at Mysterious Universe which digs into one of my personal, favorite areas of research – that relating to “British Wild Man” reports. It begins like this:
“A specifically English term that dates back hundreds of years, the Woodwose or Wodewose – possibly derived from a combination of wudu, which means forest, and wasa, that translates in today’s language as being – was, essentially, a hairy wild man of the woods, whose rampaging form can be graphically seen to this very day in countless pieces of priceless medieval European artwork from countries including Germany, Italy and Britain.”
