oh, that is very interesting. I would like to see the moors someday. Does anyone know where the legend of banshees came from? It sounds like something that could have come from the British Isles...
The moors are so cold and windy but quite beautiful in a melancholic way.
Banshees actually came from Ireland and gaelic mythology. In the Irish landscapes they have these mounds (or tumuli) which they believe banshees live around.
Have not heard of the mounds/tumuli - would be interested to see pictures of that and learn more. Ireland has always struck me as a place where the curtain door between the physical world we see and other worlds is thin - many interesting tales from the irish! if i were able to visit, i would definitely take any of the legends seriously, and not tempt fate.

I also realize that most legends and myths were started for a reason. There could be some type of factual basis to the banshee that's been morphed over time into something far different, and much more unbelievable. It does make for some good story telling.
yes, it's this factual basis (however far from the current mythology) that I would love to know more about
