Name: Friends of Colonial Pemaquid Announce Monday, August 12 Evening Lecture at Learning Center at Bristol’s Lighthouse Park “The Capital Crime of Witchcraft: What the Primary Sources Tell Us”
Date: August 12, 2019
Time: 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
Event Description:
On Monday, August 12 at 7:30 PM, as part of the Jan Howell Memorial Lecture Series, The Friends of Colonial Pemaquid will host an evening program entitled, The Capital Crime of Witchcraft: What the Primary Sources Tell Us.”
In l692, Fort William Henry was built at Pemaquid, and in the same year a more notable event occurred that still captures the public imagination – The Salem Witch Trials. Margo Burns is a historian specializing in those trials, and is an Associate Editor and Project Manager of the Records of the Salem Witch-Hunt, published in 2009 by Cambridge University Press, the definitive collection of transcriptions of the legal records of the episode.   
Burns has appeared in a variety of documentaries about the trials, including one for the National Geographic Channel, another which screens daily at the National Park Service Visitor Center in Salem, Massachusetts, and in two episodes of the TLC Show Who Do You Think you Are?
Burns herself is the great-x10-granddaughter of Rebecca Nurse, who was hanged in 1692.  She is a seventh-generation New Hampshire native, with two master’s degrees from the University of New Hampshire.
Join us for what promises to be a compelling and informative presentation.
Location:
The lecture, which is free to members, $5 for non-members, will be held at the Learning Center at Bristol’s Lighthouse Park.
