New Hidden Histories collection - Salem Witchcraft Trials
Just in time for Halloween, we have a collection of records from the infamous Salem Witchcraft Trials of the late 17th century.
If you're familiar with Arthur Miller's play The Crucible, you might be surprised at how much more banal and bizarre some of the cases truly were.
The original manuscripts in this collection are owned by our project partners, the Phillips Library at the Peabody Essex Museum.
Check out the collection page for more information.
