Early witches were people who used magic, calling upon spirits for help or to bring about change. Most witches were thought to be unbelievers doing the Devil’s work. Many, however, were simply natural healers or so-called ‘wise women’ whose choice of profession was misunderstood. Meet two wise women. They will talk of superstitions, religion and witches also bringing their Barber Surgeon equipment and telling of their gorier treatments. Learn about alchemy: how to turn base metal to gold. Now that’s Magic!
