This week, we welcome Dr Ian Evans, architectural historian, author and conservationist. Dr Evans’ 2010 thesis, ‘Touching Magic’, was the first ever academic examination of the historic use of witches marks, bottles and other apotropaic magic in Australia.
It's an absolutely fantastic chat. There are photos from Dr Evans' research available at runesoup.com, along with his entire thesis, some additional reporting on the topic and a video on the Tasmanian Magic Project.
