This 'private' cult in the individual farm context comprise rites of passage in connection with the construction and inauguration, as well as the abandonment and demolition of houses, but also magical depositions for protection against evil beings, diseases and lightning. The book has an appended catalogue of ca. 330 houses from Sweden and Denmark where such depositions have been found.
