Witchcraft & Wicca

England's New Forest has always had a reputation as a place where witchcraft was practiced; and this reputation has been strengthened by the fact that two of the founders of the modern movement known as Wicca were associated with the area. During his researches for THE FOREST, Edward Rutherfurd examined the literature on both these subjects, and his researches are incorporated, where appropriate, in the story.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first leap year in the modern sense was in 1752 in Britain, with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar by Britain and her colonies. This was not the first time leap years had been used; the Julian calendar used before 1752 had a simpler system of leap years, and The Islamic calendar Al-Hijra also has an extra day added to the 12th month Zul Hijja on leap years.
