Spells from the Wise Woman’s Cottage
A guide to the magic behind one of the Museum’s best-loved displays, written by Steve Patterson.
Familiars: Animal Powers of Britain by Anna Franklin
The black cat clinging to the witch’s broomstick, the raven perched on the witch’s shoulder as she stirs her cauldron – everyone knows that witchcraft required the help of magical animals. But behind these stereotypes is an ancient and profound relationship, investigated in this thought-provoking book.
It reveals the wealth of folklore and mythology that surrounds not just the usual suspects but a whole range of animals, and also offers a guide to working with these Animal Powers.
