In episode eight we will continue our examination of the law in early Colonial America. First, we will examine the trial and banishment from the Massachusetts Bay Colony of Anne Hutchinson in 1637. Next, we will discuss one of the strangest episodes in American legal history, the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Last, we will take on the codification of law in the 17th century, with a particular emphasis on the 1648 Laws and Liberties of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
