Ghost and Witch-hunt at the witchcraft museum

Prepare to be mesmerized by the Witchcraft Museum of Iceland, where the captivating history of witches and sorcery unfolds before your eyes. In fact, this country has a strong relationship with suspected wizards. A story handed down tells that in 1652 a man was burned at the stake. This is because they suspected that he had conjured a ghost to destroy his enemies. Another story tells that there was a constant witch-hunt that lasted from 1654 until 1690. During this time, known as the ‘Fire Century’ or ‘Brennuöldin’, 16 men and a woman were murdered.

What can you find in the witchcraft museum Iceland?

Inside the witchcraft museum, a collection of bewitching artifacts await. Firstly, there is the Angurgaìp, which is one of the most magical staves in Iceland. The power can be felt by being near it. It is possible to marvel at the magical symbol of making people invisible.

Moreover, visitors can find models of the terrifying Tifery at the museum. This demon is sent by women to steal milk from local farmers. After the bargain, he vomits up a flawless and pure form of butter. These women can be recognized by a mark on their inner thigh; a wart from where the Tiferi feeds.

But that’s not all! Witness the Viking artifact that was ceremonially used to summon gods, still bearing traces of sacrificed animal blood

Lastly, you can also see the disturbing fleshy trousers, the ‘necropants’. To make necropants it is necessary to have the flesh skin of local people, it suggested that the person is dead. Therefore, if this person provides permission, it is necessary to cut the skin of the legs off in one piece. It would be possible then to wear the skin. It is required to steal a coin from a stolen widow along with the magical sign nábrókarstafur written on a piece of paper and place it in the scrotum. The result is that the money should naturally fall into the pants and encourage the family’s wealth.
