Just had a quicky peek at the first one, as I'm about to do dinner.. I like that presenter.. not sure of his name.. he just did a brilliant programme called 'Coast', which took you to all the beautiful places in Wales. Thanks for these Oak..will watch them properly later. :wave:

Very cool. I've been wanting one of those bellarmine jugs-just for the historical factor-but even the repos are expensive for a pottery jug

Fantastic. I have never though of a witch bottle being used by "normal" or non magic folk before to keep witches at bay.

Probably because the stories i was told of witch bottles was for magical purposes to keep baneful spells and people away from your home, basically anything with malicious intent. I find it fascinating that people used them for under the hearth to keep witches from coming down the open chimney. And the hidden clothes were to distract the witch from the actual person. I think im going to do a bit more research on them historicaly now. Thanks for the vids Oakbuchanan!

Finally got a chance to sit down and watch these, great, thanks! Trust old Ron Hutton to be in the docmentary, lol. The link about the pins was good too - ritually 'killing' the pin so it could go off and do its job on the astral plane. I find it facinating that alot of methods which were used to keep witches at bay are now used BY witches, and I wonder why this is. Like witches bottles, red cord, horseshoes, rowan.... hmm.

I remember watching these; the bottle is there to keep all the elements of the spell together; one can use any container really; hiding in plain sight comes to mind I need something tangible in which to channel my anger at the injustice and wrongdoings perpetrated against me and mine; a witch'bottle'might be just the thing
