Podcast host Mark Norman is one of only a few folklore researchers specialising in the field of Black Dog apparitions. He holds what it is thought to be the UKs largest archive of Black Dog ghost eyewitness accounts and traditions. In this episode, Mark draws on his archive to examine this phenomena which, despite sightings spanning nearly 1,000 years, is largely unknown by many people. In particular, the episode looks at connections between Black Dog ghosts and the wider European folklore of the Wild Hunt.
