Richard Skelton writes: "The poem is part of a larger, ongoing body of work, The Cult Revived – a proposed ‘linguistic excavation of northern Britain’. The work is an attempt to syncretise material from varying disciplines, including archaeology, ecology, history, biology, geology and folklore, in order to create a new mythography of the north – a salvaging of its deep landscape history and an account of its flora, fauna and settlement by humans.

"In this instance, the text is generated from a corpus of material gathered here:
