Early English Charms, Plantlore and Healing

Stephen Pollington

An unequaled examination of every aspect of early English healing, including the use of plants, amulets, charms, and prayer. Other topics include: Anglo-Saxon witchcraft, shaminism, tree-lore, omens, dreams, runes, gods, elves, dwarfs, and theories of magic.

The author has brought together a wide range of evidence for the English healing tradition, and presented it in a clear and readable manner.

The three key Old English texts are reproduced in full, accompanied by new translations.
