How did witches used to get found out?


Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 02 Apr 2008

Witches used to be tied to a chair and thrown into the water.

If they floated then they were clearly a witch to be able to float and would therefore be burnt as a result.

If they sunk, well then they weren't a witch, which wasn't much consolation for the person concerned as they were rather dead by the time the mistake was realised.
