Scottish Witchcraft


The Survey of Scottish Witchcraft was a project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). It created a database of information about people accused of witchcraft in Scotland between 1563 and 1736. This can now be searched free of charge via the website or downloaded in its entirety, offering insight into biographical information about alleged witches, trials and persecution of witches and the culture, folklore and practice of witchcraft in Scotland. The site also includes a bibliography of further readings about Scottish witchcraft.
