It’s Halloween week! Are you a fan of things that go bump in the night? Do you like a bit of spooky or gruesome history? We are here to help!

Then we have a story of medieval witchcraft from Dr Rachel Moss:

And if that’s whetted your appetite for something a bit longer, you can read this post by Dr Caroline Nielsen on a Victorian ghost seer.
