The unit was "magic and the millenium" it was one hour
a week for a semester. There was also a unit from the
same lecturer in the second semester on witchcraft
which I also took. This was in Sydney Teacher's
College, now, but not then, part of the University of
Sydney. I understand the courses were offered because
the lecturer was told he had to fill up his timetable

lecture on. I'm amazed there were students in any of
the other options as they were all on booring
educational psychology and such like with clearly no
relevence to anything one was likely to encounter in
the classroom. While a subject like "Witchcraft" could
be quite helpful if, as in a nearby school, there is a
student who's official religion is "Witch"

lecturer had - don't think it was welsh)
