800 Year Old Witch Discovered

Posted on September 29, 2011


The corpse, which dates back to the middle ages, was found with 7 nails driven through her jaw bone, reports the Mail Online. She was found in a grave site next to another purported witch, who was surrounded by 17 dice as part of a bizarre witches ritual. The number 17 was considered unlucky in medieval Italy.

Archaeologist Alfonso Forgione said ‘She was buried in bare earth, not in a coffin and she had no shroud around her either, intriguingly other nails were hammered around her to pin down her clothes.

‘This indicates to me that it was an attempt to make sure the woman, even though she was dead, did not rise from the dead and unnerve the locals who were no doubt convinced she was a witch with evil powers.

This is the latest evidence of witchcraft in Italy since the last sighting of Ruby Rubacuori.
