Nothing says Halloween like a witch hunt.
But instead of going on a witch hunt, people in England are looking for ancient carvings, known as apotropaic marks, that were used to help ward them off, according to CNN.
Historic England, a government entity tasked with protecting the country's historic environment, is starting a record of these markings.
Many of the markings date back to the 16th century when more people believed in witchcraft.
These marks are a physical reminder of how our ancestors saw the world.
The markings are typically found on stone or wood near doors, windows, and fireplaces.
Basically, they were placed at entryways to ward off witches and other evil spirits.
Historic England's website notes that witchcraft was classified as a felony there in 1562.
"This led to thousands of people, mostly women, being falsely accused, forced to confess under torture and punished," according to Historic England's website.
The markings take multiple forms, including daisy wheels and hexafoils. Other types of apotropaic marks include pentacles and five-pointed stars.
According to CNN, these markings are most commonly found in medieval houses, churches, and barns dating from the 16th to 18 centuries.
