The persecution of witches has a long and bloody history; this illustrated book gives a graphic account of Northampton's history of witchcraft through the ages - from magical rites in the prehistoric era to 1951 when the Witchcraft Act was repealed in Britain. Christianity deemed all witchcraft as heresy and the Church aimed to stamp it out completely. Using a variety of documentary sources, this book unearths Northampton's witchcraft history to give many fascinating accounts of the punishments meted out to those accused and convicted of sorcery, as well as many myths and superstitions, some of which are still followed today. This book should prove a spellbinding read for anyone with an interest in the history of Northamptonshire or anyone who simply enjoys bewitching stories.
