Entry into Papua New Guinea (PNG) was very different in 1964 from later periods. Events of exchange in 1964–1965 greatly influenced subsequent writing on Hagen. Events surrounding witchcraft were salient among the Duna in the 1990s. We discuss Christianity in Hagen and also changing ideas about sorcery and witchcraft in the Highlands of PNG, showing how continuity and change are intermingled. Personal and historical narratives flow together. Memories are embodied and emplaced in the landscape. In Scotland, farms and the remembered histories of farms are important. Ireland’s political heritage is strongly marked by more recent conflicts than holds for Scotland. We discuss memory narratives and current peace and conflict-related actions, including farming histories and the Ulster Scots identity.
