Halloween… where better to spend it than in a pub with the words ‘Banshee’ and
‘Labyrinth’ in its name, deep within Edinburgh Old Town, talking about Witches in Scotland?
The nice people at Skeptics in the Pub have invited me to give a Halloween special as part of their round of talks.
I’ll be discussing the historical reality of Scottish witchcraft as contrasted with its typical
portrayals, and outlining my investigations into the possible truth behind the famous Maggie Wall Witchcraft Monument in Perthshire.
The illustrated talk is free and kicks off at 7.30, at The Banshee Labyrinth, 29-35 Niddry
Street, Edinburgh EH1 1LG. I’ll be bringing books for sale, as usual.
