Richard III Society – Death in the Garden – A Talk by Michael Brown – Event Cancelled

Sat 21 Mar 2020

Mankind has always had a morbid fascination with poisonous plants; how their poisonous properties were discovered and developed will most likely be left unknown. Over the centuries poisonous plants have been used to remove garden pests, unwanted rivals and deceitful partners. They have also been used for their medicinal qualities, as rather dangerous cosmetics, even to help seduce a lover when perceived as an aphrodisiac. Some of these and other uses originate in a medieval book that has not yet been translated into English. Shamans and priests used these plants for their magical attributes, as a means to foretell the future or to commune with the gods. Discover how a pot of Basil helped to conceal a savage murder. Learn the truth about the mysterious mandrake

Limited spaces available and must be pre-booked – Cost £5.00 – Doors open 2pm – Talk starts at 2.30pm
Tea and cake afterwards 
