Where do creativity and history meet? How do folk tales and archaeological finds combine to reveal traditions that have survived across centuries?
Author Elizabeth Garner joins archaeologist Dr. Tim Campbell Green for a fascinating evening of readings, discussion and demonstration. Stories will be told and objects will be shared.
Elizabeth and Tim will unpack ‘caches’ of ritual objects discovered in the boundary places of chimneys and doorways and match these to the tales of the characters who dwell there – the welcome and the not so welcome guests.
They’ll be revealing how ordinary objects are transformed by ritual into extraordinary objects of protection: the prayer held in a bent coin, the placing of the pins to keep the Changelings at bay and many more besides…
Expect magic, mystery and mischief in this exploration of a treasure trove of folklore belief that still speaks to the modern world.
Elizabeth will be reading excerpts from her collection of Folk Tales, Lost & Found which is being published by Unbound. A percentage of the proceeds from the evening will also be donated to The Blackden Trust.Sold Out
