Today, I’m joined by Claire who’s chosen to talk about the witch trials which took place in Scotland between 1590 and 1727 and why there is a campaign now to have those women and men who were executed for witchcraft to be officially pardoned by the government. To start us off with this topic, Claire has found us two texts to read:

A Brief History of Calling Women Witches

Why the witch-hunt victims of early modern Britain have come back to haunt us

During the conversation, she also mentions the Witches of Scotland campaign and you can find more information about that here:

I also recommend a podcast episode I listened to a year or so ago about the European witch craze:


Claire is an English educator and runs The Edinburgh Experience. She specialises in using Scottish culture as a vehicle for people to connect with and learn English. She runs cultural immersion programs every summer and also a new “Tours with Tots” program for parents where they can use their brains (!) and learn about Scottish history while meeting other new parents.

You can contact her via her Instagram:
