Officially Britons have been Christian for more than 1500 years. But scratch the surface and you'll find their ancestors believed in far more than Christ and the cross. From kings to commoners, they believed gods, witches, sprites, demons, and evil spirits were all indisputably real - and could intervene in their daily lives with devastating results. This is a relatively unexplored aspect of the past yet it's crucial to our understanding of life in previous centuries.
