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?
Keeping Curry on Hand. Queen Victoria loathed spicy food, but as Empress of India, she insisted that curry be available at all times in the event that a “visiting oriental” ever showed up unannounced at the palace doors. The food itself, of course, was probably not something to be desired by any visitor. It consisted of previously cooked food doused in curry powder.
