Abstract:

This article, the second of two parts–the first appearing in MR&W Vol. 15 No. 2 (2020)–examines historical and textual evident concerning some objects known as "witch-bottles," stoneware jugs filled with ingredients, heated, and often concealed as a means of curing bewitchment in early modern England. I here provide a complementary examination of material evidence available from Early Modern Britain and the eastern seaboard of North America, placing these material remains in context of the historical and textual evidence for the healing practice surrounding these objects that was the topic of the first article.
