Contributors include Andrew Collins, Caitlin Matthews, Linda Iles, Alex langstone, Maria Teresa-Harmer, John Merron and several artists, all of whom have revealed Elen of the Ways to the world. So who was Elen - Helena; the goddess of many names? In "Finding Elen" we have several archetypal contenders. But whoever she was, Elen is seen as a guardian protectress of Britain.
