Werewolf or Warrior? Where do our Folklore Tales come from?

Even the most incredible legends have a germ of truth at their root. From Gilgamesh and the Biblical Flood, to Dragons and Dinosaurs, to Vampires and Vlad the Impaler, and, more recently, Faeries and Flores Man. There is a constant stream of examples of what were once thought to be fanciful tales that are now seen to be based on scientific facts. 

This Talk to an Expert chat will be led by regular Ancient Origins contributor and Medieval History and Folklore expert Charles Christian, who was recently commissioned by an English newspaper to investigate a reported werewolf sighting, and will focus specifically on European Werewolf legends and whether they can be traced back to Viking Berserkers. Be prepared for bloody tales and sagas of crazed killers!
