Today The Wild Hunt posted a great set of news stories called Pagan Voices: Gavin Bone, Teo Bishop and Britain’s Wicca Man, the latter being a short documentary about Gerald Gardner by Professor Ronald Hutton, which i have embedded below. Though i am no great fan of Hutton’s because of his views that Wicca is a modern invention with little real pagan roots, he does do a great job in this 30 minute documentary of presenting a well rounded history of Gerald Gardner. I especially found of interest the section about a High Priest of Witchcraft who owns many of Gardner’s magickal tools and original Book of Shadows and in seeing his collection of them.
Also of great interest to me was a two part interview linked from TWH with Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone. Here is Part One and Part Two with Part Three just released today 6/20. I just love to hear her and them writing and speaking about the type of Witchcraft they practice now, as evident in these interviews and in their most recent book Progressive Witchcraft, which i highly recommend.
So enjoy all the links at TWH to these recent stories about what these and other Witches, Pagans and Druids are up, and enjoy the video. Blessed Be!
