We are doing an English project on Macbeth and one of the project options is a power point presentation. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with witchcraft from the 16th century. Thanks. I hope this in the right forum.

i have no idea what a 'power point presentation is, but maybe this will help...

http://www.roanoke.edu/history/Leeson/witchcraft_intro.htm

it's a series of lectures on the history of witchcraft fromm 1100 - 1750 CE.

or perhaps one of these links...

Also, there are a couple of threads bouncing around in here, about legendary and folk witches. Some of the cases mentioned in these threads, have to do with people from that era. I will look into it and bump some of them for you.

Some threads which might be pertinent to your project, are the threads right on this page..

Folk magic, and archeological finds, Britain,
Legendary and Folk Witches,
Malleus Malificarum,
When Did Goddess worship in Ireland begin.

This last thread was split in two. One of them dealing with a famous case of suspected witchcraft..I believe in the era of which you are questioning.

Danustouch offered you some good threads to check out. Perhaps you can also ask questions in the Literature forum, since Macbeth is a literary work. Maybe people who check out that forum can give you some good advice. I love doing to Power Point presentations. I seldom have the time to do them though. People really like to see pictures during presentations; pictures keep our attention. Perhaps you can find some good books at the library and scan some pictures for you presentation. Or you can check out some websites to get pictures. Remember to ask the website for permission to use the pictures though. There's my two cents.
