Hidden Charms 2 : The magical protection of buildings

Event Category: 
Event Date(s): 
21/04/2018 - 10:00 to 18:00

I am excited to announce that once again I (Brian Hoggard) have teamed up with Jeremy Harte and John Billingsley to organize Hidden Charms 2.  Our conference in  Norwich last year  was a great success and we're confident we will have another great day, this time in the  Medieval Hall  in Cathedral Close, Salisbury. 

The list of speakers will be announced soon but rest assured they will represent the cutting edge of study into magical house protection.  The format will be the same as last year with 10 speakers each doing a 20-minute illustrated lecture followed by 10 minutes of questions from the audience.  This will all take place in a beautiful medieval hall just a stone's throw from the Cathedral and a minute's walk from Salisbury City Centre.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
