From 1563 to 1736 Scotland put thousands of women to death for witchcraft. Their supposed crimes have much to tell us about attitudes to women in the past, and in the present day. We Are All Witches is a tribute to those persecuted in the 16th and 17th century Scottish witchcraft trials and explores women from history, mythology and folklore whose supposed magical associations marked them out for good and ill. Join author Mairi Kidd as she examines the forces at work in one of the darkest episodes of Scotland’s history and to consider their echoes in the present day.
