Cunning-craft in folklore and in the real lives of common people from all parts of Great Britain has had an enormous influence upon the fascination with, and development of contemporary witch belief and practice. The often apparent crudity of some cunning craft practices hides a real wisdom and insight into the human condition.

As an author and contemporary witch, Shani Oates carefully peels back the layers of history and archaeology to reveal the real intent and purpose of many cunning-man and cunning-woman traditions.


A respected writer and researcher both into the history of witchcraft and the subtlety of its psychology, Shani Oates reveals the relevance of cunning-craft to todays world and seeks to define its place as central to the good life well lived.
