spirits of the landscape
Hello all I'm not sure whether this is the right section of the forum to place this query,but here we go. I did a quick search for the word "cucullatti", but I might be mispelling it.They are spirits of the landscape and often come in threes. I suppose I have called them to mind because at this time of year we have the three Kings in mind-yes we have all seen the amusing TV adverts featuring them lately. However, I digress. There is an interesting story that I read about years ago and I can't remember which book it was in-(possibly one of Paul Devereaux's). Basically, a couple were investigating a tumulus(illegally). the woman panicked when she saw three blokes in hoods/anoraks racing towards them along a ditch/hedgerow. but no matter how fast they appeared to move, they didn't get any closer. 3 hooded figures-Genii cucullatii. They weren't real. can we find the source of this story?
