What you'll learn
Part 1 - The History of Witchcraft

  • Ancient Magic - we begin when records began around 2 BCE and move through ancient history to 1324 AD learning about 3 key icons of Ancient Magic - Medusa, The Witch of Endor and Petronella de Meath. You will also learn about Celtic magic and tribal traditions.

  • Folk Magic - we will then delve into the ways of the 'cunning folk' by exploring the role of wise folk, healers and herbalists between the 14th - 16th century in England, discovering lost knowledge and much forgotten remedies.


  • The Witch Trials - The 17th century was a dark time for Witches. We will examine the theories and beliefs of King James I, read key sections of Malleus Maleficarum 'The Hammer of Witches', learn more about The Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins, the Scottish Witch trials, the Salem Witch trials and the end of Witch hunting.
