The cover of this tape says simply "Francis 1.12.01".
It seems to be a recording of a lecture about Gerald Gardner and Wicca.
It begins by situating the listener in the last recorded imprisonment under The British Witchcraft Act of 1735, with Helen Duncan being accused in 1944.
It then goes on to explain how the lift of this Act in 1955 was what made possible for occultists such as Gerald Gardner to gain notoriety.
Note: We invite anyone who might know who the speaker is to contact the Museum.
