Description
A compelling compendium exploring the history of 50 common folk beliefs. Discover the origins of wishing wells, birthday candles, ‘telling the bees’ and touching wood; then flip the book to explore the darker side of popular superstition to learn about witches' marks, avoiding cracks, hagstones, changelings, and more malevolence. Intriguing and unexpected insights to explain the many behaviours and customs we often perform without quite knowing why! With atmospheric woodcut-style illustrations.
