Witchcraft and the general practice of spellcraft have long been the cause of panic and mistrust within civilisations and communities. Whether or not the accusations of witchcraft were accurate or simply the product of hysteria, there are detailed accounts of the people involved and their demise at the hands of authorities and mobs of frightened citizens.

Some stories listed here may not all reside in fact, some are still legend but others are backed by authentic records and evidence.

And so in this video we take a look at our top 5 instances of witchcraft, let's begin.
