Magic & Mystery
Fri Jun 22 @ 9.00 am – Sat May 1 @ 5.00 pm
Galleries invite you to explore the role of magic in the everyday lives of people living in the Middle Ages. Displays investigate the individuals pronounced in written records as witches and wizards; the ‘science’ of magic, alchemy and experimentation; protective charms and forecasting the future through prophecies and dreams.
Using both archaeological and documentary evidence from the period, Magic and Mystery showcases a thought-provoking and often misinterpreted feature of medieval culture.
