The Witch Test: Ten

They call this test Swimming the Witch or Trial by Water.

Ducking Stool

Thou shalt be bound up and thrown in the water while the townsfolk watch to see what happens.

If thou sink and drown – thou proves innocent.

If thou float it’s the sign of the witch – so thou shalt hang or burn!
