Apparitions of ghostly Black Dogs have been seen in England for nearly a millennium and yet a comprehensive information source has never been published. Author and researcher Mark Norman (Devon, UK) delves deep into the largest Black Dog archive in England, providing a comprehensive study of sightings with an extensive gazetteer of over 750 eyewitness sightings as well as references from folklore traditions.

He is a committee member of the Folklore Society and has been researching and collecting information on Black Dog apparitions for many years. He holds what is believed to be the UK's largest archive of these sightings and traditions, which includes the recently donated archive of Janet Bord and fieldwork and notes from other respected collectors such as Theo Brown.
