The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic in Boscastle, Cornwall, houses the world's largest collection of witchcraft-related artifacts and regalia. Anglo-Saxons believed in witches, individuals who would perform malevolent magic to harm others. In the late 6th century, Christian missionaries began converting Anglo-Saxon England, a process that took several centuries. Despite this, the fascination with magic and witchcraft has prevailed. The roots of this practice span centuries and continents.
