The roads of medieval Britain and Ireland were thronged with pilgrims, most of them going on the longest journey in their lives. Chaucer's Canterbury Tales introduce us to a band traveling to the famous shrine of St. Thomas Becket at Canterbury; others sought more humble sacred places, such as the cell of a Celtic hermit, or a holy well. This book is intended to serve as a guide to those who wish to follow in the pilgrims' footsteps, in fact or in imagination, from London to the West Country, in East Anglia and along the Roman roads through the Midlands, to Durham and beyond the hills of Wales, and finally to Scotland and across the sea to Ireland. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Great Britain, Pilgrimages, John Adair, Peter Cheze-Brown, Ireland, Medieval England, Middle Ages, St. Thomas Becket, St. Cuthbert, Wells, Springs, London, Canterbury, Henry II, Glastonbury, True Cross).
