Getting charged for your own burning at the stake: PRICELESS
For hundred of years, accused witches were billed for the clergymen, judges, physicians, torturers, guards, scribes, and laborers involved in their trials, including charges for their own torture and execution.

These lace and linen undergarments date back to hundreds of years before women’s underwear was thought to exist. They had lain hidden in a vault beneath the floorboards of an Austrian castle since the 15th century. Despite their state of decay, the knickers bear more than a passing resemblance to the string bikini briefs popular today, while the bra has the fitted cups and delicate straps of its modern-day counterparts. While it was known that medieval men wore undergarments like modern-day shorts, it was thought that their womenfolk simply wore a smock or chemise, and that knickers didn’t make an appearance until the late 18th century. Bras were thought to be an even more modern invention, not appearing until around 100 years ago. However, Hilary Davidson, fashion curator at the Museum of London, said the discovery ‘totally rewrites’ fashion history, adding: ‘Nothing like this has ever come up before.’

Cleaning the altar today, adding some autumn flair over the top and then putting out offerings for the house wights (spirits) and also the gods. This here are all random dried flora I’ve laid out for Frigga on the altar. It’s time it went into a pretty bowl instead of scattered everywhere. Rose, gardenia, tulips, rowan, acorns, cherry bark and other things I’ve found and given her. 🌹🌹🌹 #altar #heathen #heathenry #frigg #frigga #norse #viking #vikings #scandinavian #asatru #asatruar #gods #wights #spirits #housespirit #fae #faery #fairy #faeries #fairies #flora #flowers #offering #pagan #witch #witchcraft (at http://www.thewellandspindle.com)
