27/09/2019: Book Revieew: England's Witchcraft Trials - Willow Winsham

This book is full of historical facts about 5 different episodes of witchcraft trials. I liked the way they are laid out in chronological order, so I could understand how attitudes and behaviours changed over the years. It was also interesting to notice which things stay the same and can be seen in social media etc today.

There is a lot of detailed information in the notes section which is excellent. It may have been better to include some of this information in the main body of the book as it would be a shame for it to be missed.

It is a well researched book and alongside all of the facts are fascinating insights into human nature. The photographs help to bring the houses and places that these people lived alive. Overall this is an excellent and interesting read.
