Welcome to the official website of Richard Hamilton. Richard is the author of The Last Storytellers: Tales from the Heart of Morocco (2011).
The book is a collection of traditional tales, myths and legends recorded directly from the last few surviving storytellers in Marrakech.
Richard has presented his book and read stories at festivals around the world including the Oxford Literary Festival, the Marrakech Biennale, the Hakaya Storytelling Festival in Amman and the Gibraltar Literary Festival.
To read more about the book see The Last Storytellers.
Richard’s latest project is the House of Stories – a collection of videos of traditional storytellers from all over the world. Following on from The Last Storytellers, which aimed to preserve traditional tales from Morocco, the House of Stories hopes to do the same for endangered folk tales, legends and myths across the globe. Its aim is to eventually become the largest online library of stories ever collected, that everyone can access forever.
