The Scotsman: New national museum proposed to honour Scots convicted of witchcraft

The Scotsman: New national museum proposed to honour Scots convicted of witchcraft. “The proposed attraction, which is hoped to secure public funding to help get it off the ground, would recall how 3,837 people were accused of witchcraft in Scotland between the 16th and 18th centuries – 85 per cent of them women. It is thought around 2,500 executions were carried out in Scotland under the Witchcraft Act during several waves of ‘satanic panic’ between 1563 and 1736.”
