Woodcut of a witch trial

Interactive Graphs

Please Note: This graph shows only those accused witches for whom we have found concrete evidence that their trial took place. The trial shows up on this graph if we know the year in which the trial took place. We do not have trial information for most people accused of witchcraft, therefore, this graph does not show all the people accused of witchcraft in Scotland. Typically we know that a trial was authorised but do not know whether it took place or what the outcome was.
