Come to Cornwall and study the history and literature about Witches! Stay in Tintagel, by the Cornish Sea, and try doing some groundbreaking archival research in the Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. This 4–credit hour course will take you to places you have never been before: Merlin‘s Cave, King Arthur‘s Castle, Stonehenge, the Holy Chalice Well of Glastonbury, and the artists‘ colony of St. Ives. We will also hike up to St. Nectan‘s Glen, the magical waterfall where King Arthur‘s knights went for blessing before their search for the Holy Grail. Other exciting excursions include a trip to Kindred Spirits, where you will try the ancient healing practice of dowsing for water, archery, and have a BBQ by the campfire with live music. At the end of our journey, we will visit Shakespeare‘s Stratford–upon–Avon to see a play about witches, and then spend a night in London before departing for home.
