Orkney witchcraft trial source books

Orkney Archive has uploaded a fascinating post on the records it holds concerning witchcraft trials in Orkney, including Sheriff Court records and other collections collated over the years.  The post is available to read at http://orkneyarchive.blogspot.com/2019/10/orkney-witchcraft-trial-source-books.html.


If interested in Scotland's dark history concerning witchcraft, don't forget to also visit The Survey of Scottish Witchcraft, "an electronic resource for the history of witchcraft and witch-hunting in Scotland" from the University of Edinburgh, available at http://www.shca.ed.ac.uk/Research/witches/.
