Review:

A treat for those who just plain love to read, Magical and Mystical Sites was written by John Wilcock, a travel writer whose valise is covered with stickers from all over the world including Venezuela, Japan, Greece, Vancouver and who has written occult guides to Britain and South America. Co-editor of the Witches' Almanac with Elizabeth Pepper, Wilcock turns his witty and seasoned eye on the ancient world. Starting in Turkey, they explore the ruined city of Ephesus near present-day Smyrna to uncover every tad of information they can about the goddess Diana whose temple stood there for hundreds of years. The reader is shown what it was like then and what it is like now, plus loads of titbits for those intending to visit. The journey wends its way to 28 spots between Turkey and Ireland including some in Greece, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, and the United Kingdom. The chapter on Samos--containing a biographical sketch of its native son Pythagoras--is alone worth the fare. -- P Randall Cohan

Synopsis:

Exploring the sacred and legendary places around the globe, this text focuses not only on lore and legends, but also on archaeological discoveries, the nature of old divinities, the relation of the sites to ancient culture and religion, and what these places are like today.
