In the 1690s New England, 20 people were convicted and killed after being accused of practicing witchcraft by their deeply religious and intensely superstitious peers.

Witch Hunt returns to colonial Salem, Massachusetts, for a fresh look at one of the most infamous events in early American history. In insightful interviews, experts debate the many witch hunt theories that have been advanced over the years - from drug-induced psychosis to personal revenge to the stress brought on by the long and brutal wars fought with the Native Americans. Visit the sites where the atrocities occurred, and get an intimate glimpse into the soul of pre-Revolutionary New England through period journals, letters, and diaries.

From the initial accusations by a group of young girls to the frenzied hunt and forced confessions that ensued, History presents a new perspective on this seventeenth-century event that continues to live on in infamy.
