"Dark Times"

The Museum of Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft, an unusual repository of the dark arts in Hólmavík, carries the traces of occult and Wiccan practices from the early years of Iceland's history. Many of the museum's exhibits allude to events from the 17th Century, when Iceland was riddled with male sorcerers. Prominent among the collection is a diverse selection of rune carvings on wood, skulls, and magical staves. There is also an exhibit of a hooded skeleton, a pitch-black raven, and a Viking-era stone used in rituals that was found in the Goðdalur valley. The strangest exhibit however is 'necropants', unique trousers that when worn and used as part of a spell, were believed to make one rich. Together, the collection of exhibits offer a thrilling insight into Iceland's witchcraft history.
