Magical Protection in Historic Buildings

The Course

A lecture-based day to find out more about the elements of protection that were part of the fabric of historic buildings. These might be spiritual middens, the contents of which have been carefully analysed, as well as exactly where they have been found in the building. These groupings of objects might include clothing, household items, furniture fragments and items connected with trade or working animals.

The Tutor

Timothy Easton is an independent academic and has written widely on rituals and superstition in early buildings.
