400-Year-Old Pendle Witch Cottage Discovered

"A construction project in Lancanshire, northern England has uncovered a 17th century cottage that archeologists think was the home of one of the Pendle witches who in 1612 were famously tried for murdering ten people with "witchcraft." One of the accused was found innocent and ten were executed by hanging. According to the BBC News, the newly-unearthed cottage contains "a sealed room, with the bones of a cat bricked into the wall.""
Now in England they will probably make it an honored historical marker. Funny how things change...
