Tales of witchcraft have been the source of entertainment for centuries, but when the tales jump into reality, a new type of wickedness emerges. Such was the case in the Scottish witch trials. The witches of Fife serve as a reminder that the stories we watch for entertainment on television have a dark, and deeply painful past.
What’s even more mysterious than the history itself is the stories these women spun surrounding their supposed confessions. It seems, they are still bewitching us… after all these years.
