GUEST,gutcher Lyr Req: Sawney Bean - cannibalistic family (47) RE: Lyr Req: Sawney Bean - cannibalistic family 19 Nov 13


Any scholars out there with access to Wyntoun care to check what, if any, references re Christie Cleik and Sawney Bean are mentioned by that writer. Details of the famine years, 20yrs. after the death of The Bruce could also be checked in the same source to help date the time scale for the events/legends.
See my post above dated 31/1/10. it being noted that Wyntoun was writing at a period less than 50yrs. after the supposed events.

A plug for the fund raising efforts for Tobar an Duchlais, these,along with a large body of other stories and songs, can be included on their excellent site if sufficient funds are raised at this time.
