A cabinet of Dark Dorset curiosities - an exhibition at the Dorchester Library starts today

Today marks the start of our two week exhibition from 14th April to 25th April 2008, in the Dorchester Library. Here is a selection of pictures taken this morning.

The exhibition celebrates the tenth anniversay of Dark Dorset, highlighting the rich customs, superstitions and traditions of folklore in the county of Dorset. The exhibition features a detailed display of artefacts, models, pictures and information on Dorset's folklore heritage featured in the books Dark Dorset Tales of Mystery, Wonder and Terror, Dark Dorset Fairies and Dark Dorset Calendar of Customs.

Details of the exhibition can be found on our previous blog entry (10th Anniversary of Dark Dorset Exhibition, Sunday, 6 April 2008) including library times.
