This black kitten came to stay this Christmas. I ended up inveigled into the Pendle Witch trials whilst looking for an authentic witch's familiar's name.  I have always quite liked the premise of the witch, in a non gothic way.  The witches that admitted practicing witchcraft at the trials were surely just entrepreneurs, earning off the back of gullibility - strong, female role models that had managed to maintain a powerful position in a misogynistic medieval world.
The Witchfinder General was more scary.
