A short piece, inspired by an account in Edward Lovett’s ‘Magic in Modern London’ (1925). During World War One, Lovett noted a resurgence of interest in amulets containing a caul – the preserved amniotic sack of a baby born with the membrane intact, covering the face. Sold around the London docks, the caul was seen as a magical object which could protect the wearer from drowning.
The vardøger is a Scandinavian Doppelgänger – one who traces your actions a few minutes before you do. The vardøger may have arrived in the docks with the London wood trade.
