The British Wild Man

Posted by: Nick Redfern on August 29th, 2013


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.”

    Very nice writing once again Nick. Good to see you still don’t leave out the possibility of other paranormal weirdies it could be besides a Bigfoot.

    Any wildman in Britain must be exactly that……..a wild ‘man’.
