Toads, Lice, and Urine: Witchcraft and Folk Magic in East Anglia with Ruth McPhee

28 October 2022, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us as we talk with podcaster Ruth McPhee about Witchcraft and Folk Magic in East Anglia.

Ruth McPhee is the host of Ruth is Stranger than Fiction, a podcast all about the strange histories and unlikely characters of East Anglia. Past episodes have covered folkloric figures including will o’ the wisps, giants, and toadmen, gruesome events such as witch trials, bodysnatching, and tragic murders, and plenty of hauntings and ghostly goings on around Cambridge and other towns of the area.

An exploration of historical beliefs around witchcraft and magic in the fens and fields of Cambridgeshire and beyond, with Ruth McPhee from the Ruth is Stranger than Fiction podcast. From malevolent curses, spells and toadmen through to the counter-witchcraft and protective magic of bodily fluids, witch bottles and hag stones, join us for an evening of peculiar tales and magical intrigue.
