Are you a woman? Poor? Old? Do you have a funky birthmark or enjoy hanging out with friends—without a chaperone? Then you could have been accused of witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials in 1692! The people of Salem, Massachusetts had extremely rigid ideas about what kinds of behavior were appropriate—especially if you were a woman, poor, or old—and deviating from the norm in almost any way could qualify you as a witch in the 1600s.

In this week’s episode of The List Show, Erin (@erincmccarthy) shares 17 signs that you’d qualify as a witch in the 1600s. Watch this week’s episode of The List Show to find out if you could have been accused of witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials.
