Mediaeval Mythbusting Blog #2: The Problem of “Witchmarks”



Some interesting parts:

"The phrase “witchmarks” is a releatively recent invention. Graffiti archaeologist, Matthew Champion, demonstrated at this year’s Vernacular Architecture Group winter conference that it may not be any older than the middle of the last decade and was specifically invented by journalists to act as an emotive word for use in attention-grabbing headlines."

"The inaccurate term refers to a loosely associated group of marks which are found in historic buildings which include M’s and double-V’s, pentagrams, knotwork, meshes, circular designs and burn marks. "

"Research by an increasing number of scholars, archaeologists and writers (sometimes all three in one!) has largely concluded that these marks were deliberately created by people across a wide period of time spanning the mediaeval, early modern and modern eras and that they may relate to the practice of averting evil or bad luck whilst also bringing good luck to the occupants of buildings (as well as other locations including trees and caves)."

It's a good time for extra protection.

I've been lurking about but didn't really have anything to say. You said the same thing about blue and orange before. May I ask what the personal significance is?

Blue and orange oppose each other on the color wheel, FWIW.

My two favorite colors.
