Vikings used to take them before going into battle, or destroying a village, or raping women, thats where the term berserk came from i think.

"The use of hallucinogenic mushrooms is probably as old as humanity. We find traces of them in many cultures and times. In the Tassili caves and in the Sahara pictures have been found of humanoids with their heads in the form of mushrooms. Shamen in Siberia would use Fly Agarics to find their path to the spirit world and in Central and South America the use of mushrooms was quite common.

This means until the `discovery' of America by the Conquistadores in the 15th century, who inflicted all kinds of prohibitions on the indigenous population. But fortunately part of this was being recorded by the priests of those days and one even had some esteem for the `codexes' of the Pre-Columbian civilizations, which were partly saved. A lot of information about those strange `Indians' was written down in those times and was preserved in libraries in Europe.

Through the first colonists it is known that the Aztecs knew several hallucinogenic drugs like tlapatl and peyote, the use of which went back to 300 BC in the North of Mexico. There was a certain acceptance of the use of hallucinogenic substances in these times, while the use of alcohol was subject to strict regulations. Drinking was restricted to older people (over 52), and youngsters who were drinking in public were severely punished. "

Thanks for the link cannon now, why don't you look at the Tripper's FAQ page stickied to the top of this forum. This thread if for YOU to offer your opinions... not for me to offer mine.

BTW

www.erowid.com is a better place to search for this information than google.

:smile:

Hell, even The Shroomery has information about modern mushroom history.

Find the links YOU like and post them here, or post what you know in your own words.

Thanks

3. What is the history of magic mushrooms?

Take a look at what the Tripper's FAQ has so far on this topic. Please feel free to discuss, edit or add to the Tripper's FAQ.

Any suggestions or new, informitave links are greatly appreciated.

I had to answer this one myself since nobody seemed to be providing links. I borrowed greatly from Erowid.

Read up on shroom history, it is awesome, fascinating stuff, then tell me what you think... also point me to what is missing... or, if you dare, add it yourself!
