Mac's story..

In the winter of 2009 Mac McCartney walked from his birthplace in the border lands between England and Wales to the Isle of Anglesey – without a map, compass, tent or stove, in January, eating only wild food.

This talk reveals the story of Britain’s late Iron-Age tribal past and a long ignored turning point in our people’s history as irresistible change swept across the known world. Much was broken at this time and much was born. Mac offers his journey as a metaphor for our times. We walk into the unknown, clouds gathering on the horizon. Rumours of danger persist and insinuate. We feel unprepared. Friends feel distant and like a dark cloak loneliness gnaws at our resolve. Mac speaks of hope, belonging, and homecoming.
