"Witches grave" in Italy

Piombino / Italy - In a medieval cemetery near Piombino in Tuscany archaeologists have discovered a 800-year old skeleton of a woman who apparently was considered a witch in his lifetime and was subjected to a cruel ritual at her funeral when her among other seven major nails were driven through the pin. Also, another female skeleton suggests that there are dealing with the remains of "witches".

In their search for the remains of the saint San Cerbone, archaeologists discovered to Alfonso Forgione from the "Università degli Studi dell'Aquila" first a female skeleton, which was surrounded by 17 dice - a game utensils so that was 800 years ago, women were banned . In the Jaws of the second skeleton put seven large nails and with 13 other nails of the body had probably been nailed over the clothes on / in the ground.

The researchers , so reported the "Daily Mail" , suggests that between 25 and 30 years of two women were old. The skeletons were buried in a simple grave without a coffin and shroud. All the evidence so Forgione , so suggest that it is the two skeletons to the concerns of women who were alive as witches.

"It's a very unusual discovery , at the same time but also very fascinating. I 've never seen anything like ," said the archaeologist . "With the nails you wanted to prevent the ' witch ' from the dead resurrected and the residents of the village calm through this ritual . The 17 attached to the second body cube favor of such an interpretation. 17 applies in Italy as an unlucky number and that apparently dice game was then prohibited women. " Probably there had been a kind of exorcism ritual suspects Forgione and want to find out with further study of the skeletons , what the women had died exactly .

Why the women, however - although they apparently were considered malignant witches - were still buried in a church cemetery, the archaeologists to answer believe , however : "The only possible explanation is that that the women apparently influential families came from and did not belong to the poor class belonged , making them still a burial in ' holy ground ' has been given .

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
