Details

Attention. The publication may have minor cosmetic defects (marks, wears, cuts, bends, crushes) on the cover and spine. The publication is otherwise in good condition and it’s unused. Why people in the past hide animal bones and other objects in the structures of their buildings? For a Witch Cannot Cross Such a Threshold! discusses building concealment practices and the worldview where they were meaningful in the light of archaeological finds and folklore accounts. Moreover, the book introduces a means for studying historical folk religion as part of the archaeology of religion.
