About this book

The dragon is the most ancient and widespread of all monsters. Dragon legends are told in every culture and in every continent on Earth. This work puts British dragon stories into their international context and attempts to fathom out what really lurks behind these fanciful tales.

But the Britain Isles are the homeland of the dragon. Although a small country, it is seething with dragon legends. Explore Dragons puts British dragon stories into their international context and attempts to fathom out what really lurks behind these fanciful tales. Could dragons once have been real creatures? Are such creatures still alive?
