After years of dedicated hard work and research Orkney is about to see the unveiling of the memorial to the victims of the historic witchcraft trials on Saturday 9th of March.
“I’d recommend folk to have a read of this – whatever your views on ‘witches’ in general, or the ‘Orkney witches’ specifically. “
“Reading Helen Woodsford –Dean’s article about creating a place for folk to think about the people who were killed, in a particularly cruel and hurt-full way, named as witches, got me thinking.”
