5 Darkest Cases Of Witchcraft & Witch Trials!

Witchcraft is a broad term for the belief and practice of magic. It can be found in various cultures across history and means something slightly different to every group. Most supposed witches were usually old women, and invariably poor. Any who were unfortunate enough to be crone-like, snaggle-toothed and sunken cheeked were assumed to possess the Evil Eye. If they also had a cat this was taken as proof. Many unfortunate women were condemned on this sort of evidence and hanged after undergoing appalling torture. So here we have 5 witchcraft cases.
