Not checked this in any way, but isn't this what Gawain does to the Green Knight?

Interesting. I must admit the whole Pagan vs Christian aspect of the Arthurian legends is something I never even thought of growing up.

People always thought hares were magical - they are the only mammals who can conceive whilst already pregnant, and many of the myths and legends (across multiple cultures) relate to Spring, fertility and rebirth. Maddy Prior taught me that!

Like it! Like the ring forts of 'fairy forts' here, its considered bad luck to disturb them in any way.
