Child Ballds Part 1



This week you'll hear about a tradition in England that has men dancing with the antlers of reindeer who lived in the 11th century, you'll find out where you can read ancient Egyptian literature for the first time, and best of all, you'll hear some of my favourite recordings of Child Ballads.
