Witches, monsters and magic remain a source of fascination in the present day and the subject has long intrigued people. This session is a chance to see, handle and discuss historic texts and documents relating to witchcraft and monsters from the archives and special collections of Palace Green Library. On display will be books containing contemporary depictions of monsters, texts arguing for and against the existence of witchcraft, trial records of those accused of witchcraft and sorcery, and accounts of the Salem witch trials.
