Further evidence of occult activity in Hopwas has emerged following the discovery of another buried artefact in the village's woodland
An Egyptian-style clay statuette has been uncovered by Tamworth man Andrew Lee – who contacted the Herald after reading about the discovery of an engraved copper tablet with magical writing which was found in Hopwas Woods last month.
And: John Conway, who discovered the tablet with his metal detector, revealed the translation to the Herald this week.
He said the language and runes, some difficult to decipher, were Enochian, used in the 16th Century by noted occultist John Dee.
