Welcome to Malefic Midlands!

This website has been developed to publish information on an archaeological project that aims to record and examine the material remains and traces of folk magic in the Early Modern Midlands of England, concentrating on Derbyshire, with comparisons from other Midlands counties.

It combines studies of domestic, funerary, and ritual material culture and contexts, in order to explore the beliefs and behaviours of everyday life in the past.


Interested readers can follow the project to receive email notifications of new posts that provide updates of research as it proceeds.
