Get to know Anne Pedersdatter – The most well known Norwegian witch On 7 April 1590 Anne Pedersdatter was taken to the place of execution, Galgebakken at Nordnes, and burned as a witch. Anne was one of approximately 300 people executed for witchcraft in Norway. Most of those accused came from the lower echelons of society and have left few traces in the historical records.

Anne Pedersdatter on the other hand belonged to the privileged class. She was married to the writer and priest Absalon Pederssøn Beyer, she was a friend of the governor's wife Helvig Hardenberg and she participated in social events together with the city's nobility: How could such a woman be convicted of witchcraft?

Her dramatic fate has inspired film directors, writers and historians throughout the centuries, and continues to fascinate till this day.
