Most of us know that horseshoes are lucky (but why?) and many keep a small, holed stone on the windowsill, believing that it will somehow act as a lucky charm. Our ancestors used graffiti and many physical objects to protect their homes from evil influences or ‘bad luck’. Belief in witchcraft abounded so there was every reason to ensure that one’s home was kept safe. This talk, including shoes up the chimney and symbols at the door, fingers crossed, will reveal much, and also what some of us might still be doing to avert danger today.
