Re: Woods

Elder is my totem tree, hence my druid name, Ysgawen (Welsh for elder tree). Anyone disrespectful enough to burn it will regret it, as it explodes, sending out very hot pieces which could easily set fire to things.

The Archaeology of Folk Magic Discussion

The Archaeology of Folk Magic

http://whitedragon.org.uk/articles/folk.htm The Archaeology of Folk Magic By Brian Hoggard Originally published at Beltane 1999 In this article I hope to draw to the readers’ attention to a little known field of study known as the archaeology of folk magic. Terrell Davis Jerseys This is intimately related to what most people call witchcraft and involves the physical remains related to practices undertaken by the ‘white’ witch to protect people’s property from ‘black’ witches and also practices which lay-folk undertook by themselves for the same reason. Nike Air Max 2016 Dames Zwart There is a bias of material in my collection to the 16th and 17th centuries, this is because this is the focus of my PhD and also because it is when there was the most fear about witchcraft – hence more archaeology relating to protection. Where material is not dated assume that it comes from these two centuries. Before beginning with a description of the finds and theories about them, it is important that I set the context for the topic. Nike Jordan 11 Future

Considering that the terms “white witch” and “black witch” are a recent invention I don’t think I’ll bother reading the article. nike tn homme Witch bottles et al were used for protection from witchcraft period. Nike Air Max 2017 Dames zwart

I wouldn’t use one because it would stop all witchcraft being used on me, and some of it I may want to happen!

True, but since this is what I consider to be a basic mistake, seeing this makes me wonder if he really knows anything about the subject. Plus I know about witch bottles anyway.

Re: The Archaeology of Folk Magic

Its interesting but I often find folks in the old country only use witch bottles to protect them from all witchcraft, and there for often don`t use them. When I was researching their history, I carried it further and went into colonial times as well.
