      “Built around numerous intriguing case studies, Cursed Britain charts the continued fear of witchcraft and harmful magic in Britain and beyond over the last two centuries. Authoritative and engaging, Waters’ book explores and explains why we should seek to understand the magical beliefs of our recent ancestors, and also requires us to reflect on the continued belief in malign forces. The material is varied and includes Roman Britain, the classical world, infanticide, and Gertrude Bell. (I've now separated out a Dig Food Blog from the main Archaeology Blog.) I also have a Political Blog here, and I write a bit about Urban Life and urban bio-diversity. Thanks for reading.
