Synopsis

The Amazing History of Wizards & Witches Discover a World of Magic and Mystery, with Over 340 Exciting Pictures by Paul Dowswell, Susan Greenwood

Sort the facts from the fairy tales and trace the evolution of wizardry - from Stone Age rituals with gruesome horned gods, through to the modern day, where magicians fair and foul dominate the big screen. Learn about the barbaric witch-hunts that swept across Europe and America, when ordinary people were put to death just because they looked different or behaved oddly. Find out about the arts of the witch, from secret potion recipes to mystic animal companions, and the real-life quest for the Philosopher's Stone!
