Hi, I was wondering if anybody would be able to help me. I've just started gathering information for my a level history Coursework, I'm planning on doing the witch craze in Britain and Scotland but I'm really struggling to find historians and sources , does anyone have any credible websites or resources where I'd be able to find some?

i did OCR history and my unit 3 exam was on witchcraft!
some great info can be found in:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Revision-No...gateway&sr=8-1
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Access-Hist...y&sr=8-2-fkmr0
(they can probably be found much cheaper elsewhere, i got the second one for £3 on ebay)

Brian Levack is a great historian to look at for witchcraft, he has a sourcebook ( https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...page&q&f=false , this is only a preview on googlebooks, but you could buy it if you wanted more). it also credits the original sources so you could look them up online to find other sources etc . he also has a few other books on witchcraft which could be great for secondary sources/interpretations.

george fraser has a book on witchcraft events in scotland https://www.worldcat.org/title/calen...7/oclc/2232591 which is in most Uni libraries, and as its summer, i found my Local uni was willing to allow me access to these kinds of books, you can always photocopy the bits you need.

im pretty sure James Sharpe was a few books/journal articles on witchcraft.

https://www.jstor.org/stable/2017521...n_tab_contents this is a pretty good journal article to start with (and there is a ton of witchcraft journals on Jstor, and on google)
