The Big Grey Man

The Big Grey Man

A similar ancient 13th century legend in Scotland of a hirsute man is described as The Big Grey Man.

According to Odette Tchernine, ancient hearsay recorded how, in the densely forested Europe of old, and its off shore islands, - the Anglo-Saxon knew men of the woods and the hills and gave them the term "the Wudewas."

She wrote in her Yeti book that it had been suggest to her that etymologically the name Woodhouse or Wodehouse in British history seem to stem from that Scottish term. In for modern times, there are no forests in Scotland.

In modern times, there is no known "big grey man." (Roger Thomas, Wales)
