Wicked Enchantments: a history of the Pendle Witches & their magic tells the compelling story of James and Alizon Device, the teenage brother and sister at the centre of one of Englandís most notorious witchcraft cases.

It gives a new perspective on one of the most dramatic events in English history, and conjures a vivid picture of what it was like to be someone who practised magic during the witch hunts.

It includes quotations from a wealth of original sources, such as trial records and books of magic, and is illustrated with photographs of magical artefacts and of a modern family recreating 17th century charms and rituals.

It is published by Carnegie Publishing Ltd, and complements their other books about the Pendle witches. Buy now from the publisher.
