Description

This talk will explore the history of the festival of Hallowe’en, with its origins in the ancient past. The pre-Christian festival of Samhain was once widely observed in Ireland and formed the basis of what later became All Hallow’s Eve. It will include themes such as gods and goddesses, ancestors, adventures to the Otherworld and ritual animal sacrifice.
