Competition Results

9th February 2023

Here are the results of our latest newsletter competition…

Last time, we had three copies of Allyson Shaw’s Ashes & Stones: A Scottish Journey in Search of Witches and Witness to give away, courtesy of Sceptre Books. We asked:

In 1590, a group of women accused of being a coven were alleged to be working to cause the death of King James VI — and later subjected to now notorious trials, the first mass witch trials in Scotland. But from which Scottish fishing port did they originate?

And the answer is: North Berwick. The winners are Lisa Rossetti, Caryne Pearce & Hilary Denham. Your books should be with you soon!

Thanks for all the entries. To be in with the chance of winning our next prize — one of three copies of Nick Acheson’s The Meaning of Geese: A Thousand Miles in Search of Homepublished today by Chelsea Green — make sure you’re signed up to our mailing list.
