Product description


The Materiality of Magic provides a platform which to showcase innovative research and theoretical approaches in magical practices and beliefs, which has largely been neglected within archaeology and related disciplines, and goes a long way toward redressing this neglect. (SIRREADALOT.ORG)

The essays have a pleasing variety and maintain interest throughout. Hopefully more books like this will be produced. (Northern Earth, 144)

“Armed with this book, specialists in many regions and periods should be able to recognise the traces and implications of magical or ritual practice…” (Ethan Doyle White Time and Mind, VOL. 9, NO. 1, 75–85)

About the Author

Ceri Houlbrook is a PhD student at Manchester University with research interests in the archaeology of British folklore and ritual, and contemporary folkloric customs, in particularly how folkloric practices become acclimatised to different times and places, and the processes which lead to their survivals, revivals, and recontextualisations.
