Ghosts and Witches at Oliver Cromwell’s House

Author image

This evening I officially launched my book Witches and Witchcraft in Ely: A History, with the help of Cromwell Cider, at Oliver Cromwell’s House in Ely. I delivered a presentation on the history of witchcraft in England, taking specific examples from trials that took place in Ely and beliefs peculiar to the Cambridgeshire Fens. I have uploaded a copy of my presentation to my site on Academia.edu. I was slightly alarmed to be surprised by a photographer from the Cambridge Evening News, who photographed me next to the Hallowe’en display in the shop in the Tourist Information Centre, so maybe something will appear in that local newspaper at some point.
