Dagon: A Weird History

Tonight’s speaker looks at the beginnings of the divinity known as Dagon

‘Dagon’: the name conjures ichtyoid horrors from the deep as described by American writer HP Lovecraft, but few know that the god Dagon has a long and weird history through the millenia. Tonight’s speaker looks at these beginnings, revealing the very earliest references from the Syrian steppes, before tracing the later history. This illustrated lecture brings you leading scholarly expertise and unpublished material, with the insights of a magically engaged practitioner. Nyar is an academic Assyriologist with a passion for things magical, who returns at Treadwells invitation.
