History of the werewolf
Thought I’d just share some werewolf history and info on what I’ve found on how far back you can find references to werewolves. A 1978 book by Ian Woodward called THE WEREWOLF DELUSION: A fully documented, thoroughly researched investigation into the world of the werewolf says that the Vikings may have brought the werewolf folklore into the Americas and introduced it to Native American tribes. Going farther back, it is thought that the werewolf originated in ancient Persia in paleolithic times (in other words, the stone age). Almost every culture has some knowledge of the werewolf. Check out the names for what a werewolf is called in other countries.
