Magic in Modern London

For those of you who want to get your walking on, here is an interesting way to find some direction.  This (free!) new app from the Wellcome Collection creates a treasure hunt through Edwardian London, in modern times.  From what I can…gather…you follow the map to track down the locations where folklorist Edward Lovett discovered amulets dropped around the city.

Check out the app here!

And for those wondering what an amulet is exactly, here’s a modern-day take on the items we hold most dear.

Happy wanders!
