Was Richard III bewitched? Wand Week 2012 continues

Wand Week 2012 continues at the King Richard Armitage fan initiative.

The infamous Gloucester of Shakespeare’s Richard III accused his sister-in-law and his late brother’s mistress of engaging in witchcraft to kill him and to shrivel his body. What do those accusations mean? Check out what I have to say in “See how I am bewitch’d”: Interpreting witchcraft accusations in Shakespeare’s “Richard III’.

You can also read there about the provisional announcement by the UK government that Richard III’s remains will be interred in Leicester Cathedral. Do you think the battle is over, though?

And sign the petition to realize Richard Armitage’s Richard III project!

Leave comments over there, please.
