Which witch is which?

I hope you all had a spooky Halloween and have gorged yourselves on candy. In keeping with the festive cheer, The Guardian Datastore has hopped aboard and with a digger in resident, Chris Blower, and scraped the court cases of Scottish witches.

Thanks to Lisa Evans we can now see that the most common reason for a court case to be held against a suspected witch arises from the defendant being implicated by another women convicted as, or suspected to be, a witch. Shocking! (Note: our digger is gender neutral!).

So hats off (pun intended) to the digger, the digital journalist and the data!
