More witch markings found at Wookey Hole
« på: 15.06.2017 11:10 »
"A series of witch markings have been discovered carved into walls at an underground tourist attraction.
The symbols were originally thought to be graffiti, but experts now believe they were carved to ward off evil spirits at Wookey Hole, Somerset.
Four new ritual protection marks were found by staff creating a new caving experience at the site.
Experts from Bristol University who have studied the markings said they dated from about 1550 to 1750.
Chris Binding from the university's speleological society, who helped carry out the survey, said about 50 carvings, which were originally thought to be mason's marks, were identified as being ritual protection marks in 2007."

"When I try to imagine a faultless love
Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
W.H. Auden, "In Praise of Limestone"
