“Howling at the Moon”: A History of Werewolves – An Free online talk hosted by the Wolf Conservation Centre!

For centuries, the monstrous figure of the werewolf has stood as an iconic figure of folklore and popular horror fiction. Yet, what do we really know about the traditions associated with this fantastical creature? In a special Halloween program, folklore researcher and werewolf expert, Craig Thomson will take guests on a deep dive through the history, legends and traditions associated with the werewolf. From classical antiquity all the way to the present day, this talk will demonstrate that there is more to these legends than silver bullets, wolfsbane and howling at the full moon!
