Ep 143: 1604 Witch Trial with Todd Butle‪r‬ That Shakespeare Life

    • History

In 1604, Anne Gunter became sick with an illness that confounded physicians. They concluded her illness must be the result of supernatural influence, and a trial ensued to try and find the suspected witchcraft. Our guest this week tested this theory when he, along with his students, re-created the trial of Anne Gunter. We are delighted to welcome Todd Butler to the show this week to tell us about the trial of Anne Gunter and the results of his experiment.
