Medieval witches with Gemma Hollman

It’s the spookiest season, which means it’s the perfect time to investigate medieval witches. This week, Danièle speaks with Gemma Hollman, author of Royal Witches, about some of the fifteenth century’s most high profile accusations of witchcraft.

Royal Witches: From Joan of Navarre to Elizabeth Woodville, by Gemma Hollman explores accusations of witchcraft with four royal women in England – Joan of Navarre, Eleanor Cobham, Jacquetta of Luxembourg and Elizabeth Woodville. The book is published by The History Press.
