MEDIA REVIEWS

“This is a fascinating, educational, elegantly written, and well-argued collection which pushes the boundaries of mainstream historical and archaeological research, shining a light on a very important subject so far over-neglected. I strongly believe that it should be considered as required reading for undergraduate and graduate students of different disciplines, and for field archaeologists especially involved in commercial archaeology.” (Debora Moretti, Magic Ritual and Witchcraft, Vol. 13 (1), 2018)“Ronald Hutton, Timothy Eastham and their fellow contributors are to be congratulated on a book full of interest. … the book is largely concerned with the English evidence but with a final glance at Australia and United States. Its great merit is that it takes seriously as a subject of study the puzzling graffiti scratched, drawn and painted in buildings. … the book is really the beginning ofa conversation rather than the last word on the subject.” (Richard Suggett, Archaeologia Cambrensis, Vol. 166, 2017)
