Sent on a mission deep into the forests of pagan Anglo-Saxon England, Wat Brand, a Christian scribe, suddenly finds his vision of the world turned upside down. His final journey is to the spirit world on a quest to encounter the true nature of his own soul.

Brian Bates explores the ways of Anglo-Saxon magic through the fictional characters of Wat and Wulf. This is one book that will be kept on my shelves to be re-read at intervals. I first discovered this book through one of my favourite albums of all time - Dreamweaver by Sabbat - which quite simply pure poetry with racous guitars and drums. The album is based on this book telling the story of Wat Brands' quest to discover the secrets of Saxon beliefs. Naturally the book covers a lot more detail than the album and that extra richness adds a lot to the story.

Bates took an ancient text from the British Museum and turned it into a delightful adventure novel, evidencing the history of Anglo-Saxon shamanism. Those interested in the spiritual will find it an especially exciting read, but even those just looking for a good historical novel will enjoy it very much. A fascinating exploration of Anglo-Saxon pre-history. com User, October 25, 1998.

Bryan Bates is a scholar of Norse paganism. Yet I detected many native American influences in the work. Could be parallels or borrowing as he has worked with Native American spiritualist and the books are listed in the bibliography. Brand despite what he sees is always in doubt as to what is real and what is not. In the end it becomes clear that what he is experiencing is real and true. Mention of the gods is slight. For a more thorough view of Saxon spirituality one should read the authors other works.

The Castaneda-like novel responsible for reawakening interest in the ancient form of European shamanism called the Way of Wyrd. Based on actual documents from the British Museum, this compelling tale reveals a modern-day relevance in an ancient way of living in touch with nature and the spiritual dimension.

Set in the pre- Christian times of Great Britain when England was divided into many small kingdoms , a monk from the Christian kingdom of Mercia is sent to learn the pagan ways of a neighboring kingdom. The purpose is to bring them over to Christianity .

Eappa , the head monk of the monastery sends him on this frightful mission. A guide has been arranged for this hapless monk and what follows is the adventure of a life time.

Brand, the protagonist arrives in a neighboring kingdom via ship to experience a lonely shore beset by rainy weather . He spends a couple nights alone and one of those nights he is presented with a nightmare of wild horses and dogs going on a hunt. He hurts his ankle trying to hide . Later on he links up with Wulf, an Anglo -Saxon sorcerer.

Sorcerers are both respected and feared. Brand and Wulf go on a series of small adventures. Mostly healings of sick villagers and animals.

Later on as they enter the forest Brand is hunted by spirits who haunt him and snatch his soul to the underworld. What follows is a gathering of plants, spirit allies and an adventure into the spirit world . Brand is being watched and chosen.

Love this book. I read it years ago and wrote it off as a flight of fancy, but years later I was surprised to find out the Yaqui Indians of Sonora Mexico had similar beliefs/capabilities when I read The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda. My question is; how did Anglo Saxons from Europe and Natives from Central Mexico develop the same skills? Or if you believe they're both stories B.S., how did the claims of very specific skills come from 2 people who never interacted. Specifically I'm referring to in this story where he teaches the Christian to jump using the "Web" that emanated from his solar plexus, and in the other book where the old "Man of Knowledge" jumped using his "fibers" that emanated from his solar plexus. I like to believe it lends credibility to the entirety of the claims in both books; and that makes the world just a little cooler place to live.

Felt a lot like the Carlos Castaneda don Juan series but based in Anglo-Saxon shamanism rather than Yaqui shamanism. Not entirely a surprise: the two types of shamanism are not so different.

I did feel this author told a more interesting story, admittedly fiction. In this tale the narrator's inner endeavors and experiences in the spirit world are explained more clearly. Based on shamanic journeying via Michael Harner's teachings, I feel this book did a nice job of exposing readers to the shamanic / spirit world experience in an entertaining way without trying to say too much (which never works) and without leaving it too vague (which isn't helpful in a practical way).

Overall I found this very entertaining.

What we know about Anglo-Saxon sorcery: Nothing. We have Beowulf, but relying on it is like relying on Shakespere's Macbeth for Elizabethan-era Scottish politics. There is also Nennius, a dubious scholar at best. A few fragments of poems, some laws and some artwork. Almost everything assumed by today's scholars is derived from comparative studies, suspected parallels in names, and the Sagas as understood by a monk (anthropology wasn't invented at the time).

What we know about shamanism: It was practiced in Britain, certainly circa 13th century and therefore probably earlier.

What we know about Saxon-era Britain: Until near the end of Saxon times, it constituted hundreds of tribes, perhaps thousands, depending on the scale you look. "Britain" as an entity did not exist and the term was not used. Religion almost certainly varied in details between tribes - no Common Book of Heathen Prayer.

Conclusion: Brian Bates' book could, realistically, reflect actual beliefs in some tribes in some parts of the isles. It cannot reflect the majority view because we don't know who the majority really were (see controversy over Oppenheimer's Who are the British), what they believed or how they practiced.

It deserves very high marks as a thought experiment. I don't see the critics of him doing better, or reconciling their views with either recent genetic, archaeological or archaeo-botanical data (if you insist on precision, I insist on hard data without which precision is an illusion). I commend his audacity for trying, and for producing a cohesive story.

It isn't perfect, but unless Odin actually exists AND offers you a copy of his memoirs, you might need to put up with the limitations of the knowable.
