Leechcraft
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.

- Bald's Third Leechbook
- Old English Herbarium
- Lacnunga
