Join the Open Graves, Open Minds Project on 31st October to explore the magical and spectral history of St Albans. Your hosts will be vampire expert Dr Sam George and Dr Kaja Franck (a specialist in werewolves); together they will draw on the dark folklore of Hertfordshire’s finest supernatural city, home to hidden tombs, ghostly monks, pagan gods, grotesque carvings, a medieval dragon’s lair, succubi, winged skulls, witches, Sir Guy de Grevade, a notorious wizard, Wicca communities, folklore rituals and more!!
Highlights of the tour will include a cloven-footed succubus, a path made out of gravestones and a winged skull or ‘death’s head’, which represents death taking flight and the soul’s journey to the afterlife. This memento mori has become a symbol of studying Open Graves with an Open Mind, which is what we will be encouraging on the night.
