SALEM EPISODE 3: A ‘new Jerusalem’ on the edge of a wilderness

Sunday, 31 October

In this episode we’ll explore what life was like in the New England settlement, and consider whether environmental pressures – from the threat of attack to an inhospitable climate – could have played a role in the outbreak of accusations of witchcraft.
