Can You Survive The Witch Trials?



I've been asked to share this with you for some Halloween fun:

Witch way will you die? Quiz reveals whether you’d survive the Witch Trials. A new, interactive quiz looks at how likely you are to survive the Witch Trials.

Can You Survive the Witch Trials? asks a series of questions to determine your level of guilt and then reveals one of 15 excruciating punishments.

Includes unique facts from historical research about each question and punishment, and the truth behind the trials.

Women were four times more likely to be accused of witchcraft than men during the 16th century. Between 1500 and 1600, almost 80,000 suspected witches were sentenced to death in Europe.

Using information from extensive historical research, the quiz assesses your physical and personality traits and assigns a punishment based on how likely you were to be considered a witch between the 15th and 17th centuries.

The piece gives historical accounts used to determine a person’s level of guilt and also reveals horrific facts about the Witch Trials. These includes how many convicted witches were killed in Europe, the method of execution for each trial, and what witch-like characteristics led to accusations.

For example - did you know that the youngest victim of the Witch Trials was only five years old? Or that you were more likely to be accused of witchcraft if you had no children?

By asking questions based on your physicality, personality and lifestyle, Can You Survive the Witch Trials? assigns you one of 15 sickening punishments, each more chilling and cruel than the last.

You also have the chance to change your answers and try to escape without punishment - or potentially increase your guilt and suffer an even worse fate...

The quiz outcomes include:
No punishment
Pricking
Stocks
Thumbscrews
Banishment
The boot
Iron bar
Scalding baths
Strappado
The rack
Ducking
Pressing
Hanging
Pulled apart
Burned at the stake

James Starkey, Stay In Devon Marketing Manager, said: “We’re very proud of our history and heritage in Devon – but the area doesn’t half have some gruesome stories to tell as well! Not least the fact that the last ever witch hangings took place in the Little White Town of Bideford back in 1682.

“With Halloween fast-approaching, we wanted to see how people in the modern day would have fared during the height of the witch trials. Our interactive quiz will tell you whether or not you’d have been found guilty of being a witch – and reveals the gruesome punishment you’d have had to endure!

“Of course, Halloween is all about enjoying yourselves, and that’s what this is about too – having fun. Whether you’re heading out with the kids trick-or-treating or going to a party with friends, make sure you stay safe this October 31st.”
