1612: The Lancashire Witch Trials

by Christine Goodier - £6.95  Carnegie Publishing Ltd (Palatine Books) (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781874181774 | ISBN 10: 1874181772

This excellent little book is a wonderful introduction to the story of the Pendle witch trials of 1612.
 
In a very lively and readable style, Christine Goodier provides a who’s who of the events, as well as an interesting angle on the trials themselves. She emphasises that the accused were merely flesh and blood, not demons, arguing that they were poor, uneducated people who were at worst misguided. Her inevitable conclusion is that a terrible injustice was done 400 years ago when they were famously convicted of witchcraft and hanged.
