Curse of the Werewolf
Over 400 years ago, a German farmer called Peter Stumpp was tried and brutally executed for the crime of being a werewolf. He was not alone; across Europe hundreds of people were put to death as werewolves. What were these monsters and why were so many people convinced that they were real? Now investigators are using the latest technology to discover the truth behind the werewolf myths. Why did some people admit to being werewolves; could powerful hallucinogens be to blame? Why did the wolf become a symbol of evil and help give birth to the werewolf myth?
