Bān-hūs; 'a charnel house; the human body'. 'Bone House' explores our physical relationship not only with the earth, but with what lies beneath it; that 'shamble of rubble and forgotten time' where our history and memories are buried. As we walk the land we learn to read and interpret it, to listen to its sounds, and re-connect with it through music, language and the ancient words and traditions of the past.

"Her poems are layered with myth, history, personal experience.
They are full of fine observations…the real enriched by myth,
and myth deepened by the essential realism of the poet's vision."
Gillian Clarke
