Spellbound: Magic, Ritual & Witchcraft

Friday, August 31, 2018 - 10:00 to Sunday, January 6, 2019 - 17:00

This is the Ashmolean's first exhibition to examine how magical thinking has been practised over the centuries. With exquisitely engraved rings to bind a lover, enchanted animal hearts pierced with nails, mummified cats concealed in walls and many other intriguing objects, this exhibition shows that our use of magic is driven by our strongest emotions: the need to be loved, our fear of evil and the desire to protect our homes.
