Were the infamous 17th-century Witch-Finders Matthew Hopkins and John Stearne ‘heroes’ or ‘villains’? Using creative learning activities and historical sources, these 4 workshops enable pupils to reach their own answer to this question, by looking at the East Anglian Witch-Hunts of 1645-7 from a variety of different 17th-century perspectives. Each Workshop is based on a powerpoint presentation and detailed lesson plan and is designed to run for c. 80 minutes of teaching time; additional handouts are provided for workshops 1 and 3.
