Lesson Seven: Europe Part 1 Study Guide
The Bell-Beaker culture is fully magic. They inhabited the European Stone & Bronze Age which started 1.4 million years ago and concluded in 1800 BCE. They had curious writing, pottery, & weird structures made of stone. This culture progressed from symbols to written text & the symbols were for wand motions, messages, & words. Stonehenge was created in 3000 BCE & has astronomical magic. This structure helps fertility & the birth of a child. It was also used to increase stamina in warriors by potions & spells.
Magical people thought that The Hag & the misfortune of DeBolbec was the origin story of the Stonehenge. The story suggests that, in a rage, Cedany magically encircled the land with stones & turned Josselyn into stone as well. Cedany noticed her error & fled. When Gerbert DeBolbec saw his wife in stone, he demolished the hags house. He didn't know what stone his wife was trapped in, so he put a spell on the stones to be put in a package to look for the hag. When Gerbert found out some stones were missing, he got angry. Once he found Cedany, he put a spell on her & the spell killed her.
European churches banned magic, as well as explanations in forms of science. Christianity reached across Europe & due to this, witches & wizards left to live farther away. The International Statute of Secrecy was then created.
