TV: Harlots, Housewives and Heroines - and Witches

The persecution of witches in 17th century Britain was examined in last night's BBC 4 documentary series Harlots, Housewives and Heroines: A 17th Century History for Girls, with historian Lucy Worsley. The TV programme also looked at some of the folk magic people used to protect themselves from witchcraft. I thought it was very interesting.

Programmes on BBC TV Channels are usually available to watch on iPlayer for at least a week after they are shown:

I love Lucy Worsley! She's so irreverent, but never dumbs down. DO watch this, it's interesting and great fun. In fact, watch the whole series if you can.
