Witches 2
Torturing and execution of witches in the Middle Ages

Ursula Southeil, better known as Mother Shipton was born of a teenager mother who was suspected to be a witch. She lived between 1488 and 1561 in Yorkshire and was described as ugly child as she was deformed with twisted legs, large head, and sunken cheeks. She was a clairvoyant, predicting numerous events, even in the distant future, many of which actually came true.

Luckily, Mother Shipton did not die by the sword like other witches. But died a normal death and buried on unholy ground on the outer edges of York around 1561.
