About the Author

Sin ad Spearing is a psychological historian specialising in the research of obscure beliefs. She worked as a professional musician before returning to university to study psychology and philosophy. Following a number of articles published in Journals including those of The British Psychological Society and Mensa, Sin ad began researching the bizarre world of Old English medicine, psychiatry and associated supernatural traditions.


"Coining a new area of medical research, Ancientbiotics explores the efficacy of ancient remedies. The voices of the old herbalists and their remedies come to life in this book. For example, there is the 9th century England Bishop Ælfheah the Bald, who risked his reputation to collect folk remedies from the pagan country women. The book discussed the ways in which many of these old remedies have been shown by science to be effective. One even slows down the superbug MRSA where modern antibiotics have failed. Historian Spearing writes for the British Psychological Society."
--American Herb Association
