WITCHES AND WITCHCRAFT THROUGH THE AGES


The belief in witches and witchcraft dates back to prehistoric times and was widespread all over the world from South and Central America to Europe, Africa and Asia. How have views concerning witches and witchcraft changed over the years and why? Do your research and write a narrative in which you explain. While doing so, explain, analyze and try to analyze causes and effects.
