Spells and Charms booklet now available
Several years ago, the Museum team collected together a selection of spells and charms. They hand-wrote some and typed up others. They were then pinned in the lower gallery on one of the beams. They stayed there for many years and were recently removed during refurbishments of that area (they were getting a little tatty and dusty so it was best that they were removed).
The original spells and charms have been preserved in the Museum archive and they have also now been printed in a little booklet which is for sale in the Museum shop for £2. It is a great way to preserve this part of the Museum’s history and ensure that it reaches as wide an audience as possible.
The fifteen page booklet is full colour with twenty one spells for healing, love and protection (amongst other things). There are also four examples collected by Cecil Williamson, the founder of the Museum including one to protect yourself from ghosts and another on the art of “passing on” magic.
The booklet can also be purchased from the Museum’s online shop:
