The Final Revelation
Creatures of Hypothesis and Fact
A book, a copy of which can be found in the Old Library at Brichester University. It describes cults forming around flocks of birds. Several such have been reported; in the
Lake District, one such cult was documented, through letters from the local priest, in 1598. Reportedly, the cult sacrificed their daughters to the birds, who afterward ate the offered corpses.
It also has a section of legends about crows and ravens. Since medieval times, ravens have been reputed to guard the Tower of London. On the death of a raven, the others gather round in a “raven funeral,” squawking as it is buried. A diary entry from 1816, referred
to but not held in the archive, notes an instance of the ravens tearing each other apart.
