My aim is to try to bring the historical wise/cunning women to life, to imagine what her life was like living in the villages of old. The ancient healer would weave medicinal and spiritual knowledge into her healing craft to relieve the suffering of her patients. Some of the remedies used might seem obscure to us now and some have been proven to be very effective when put under our modern microscopes.
Historical displays of Medieval to early modern British Herbalism: Ideal for museums, historical sites, re-enactments/living history events. Hands-on events.
