Scotlandís witches will come under the spotlight at a day-long event in Dunfermline on Sunday. The Glen Pavilion event has been organised by voluntary group Fife Witches Remembered with the aid of [email protected] Archives. It will combine the academic knowledge of Julian Goodare and Louise Yeoman, the co-authors of the Survey of Scottish Witchcraft and author Dr Lizanne Henderson with the expertise of people who have tried to piece together the real stories of the women, and sometimes men, who were persecuted.
