James I and the English Witch Hunts: Recorded lecture

We were delighted to welcome back acclaimed historian, author and broadcaster Tracy Borman for our September online Lecture. Now you can see the recording of this gripping talk, inspired by her non-fiction book, Witches, as well as her fiction trilogy, The King’s Witch, which takes us into the turbulent world of the early Stuart court. After inheriting the throne from the last Tudor monarch, Elizabeth I, James VI and I waged a war on witches and Catholics alike. It was not long before a dark campaign to destroy both King and Parliament gathered pace, culminating in the Gunpowder Plot. Access the link to the recording here (with a donation if you can)
