Hi Eadha,

I’ve always been fascinated by the non-scholastic or folklore survivals and traditions that may have come down to us right from pre-historic times and that in Britain and Ireland would be considered “witchcraft” or the art of the “cunning folk”. For example, there was a Cornish belief that “the knowledge” had to pass from a man to a woman or a woman to a man and that a “charm” should never be written down or it would lose its power. Even though we could never prove it, it’s really tempting to see something druidic in that, and that’s lore that’s been passed down orally for countless generations.
