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?
Hard to believe, but this month of April is the 50th anniversary of the 'official' break-up of the Beatles. This author was a very timid young student at Cambridge then. But the far more worldly and talented guy who had the room across the corridor from me had a lovely girlfriend who worked for John Lennon; and one day they scooped me up and took me to Lennon's house at Ascot. The white house with the white piano. Lennon himself wasn't there, but all the same . . . Fifty years later, that day is still so vivid
