IN THIS EPISODE: (Dark Archive episode originally aired March 14, 2017): In the 1600’s, a witchfinder was given whatever he asked for, for fear of him declaring those who refused a witch. But how he chose to test one woman for witchcraft is enough to make your stomach turn. *** A young couple discover a radio… with a mind of its own. *** A strange ball of light enters the room of a young man, with no explanation to be found. *** Sheldwich is typical of the small rural hamlets which litter Kent, but in some ways, is far more unique and strange, one could almost say, weird. *** Did our ancestors fight and survive an ancient zombie apocalypse? Can a zombie apocalypse really happen, and if it does, what are our chances of survival? SOURCES AND ESSENTIAL WEB LINKS… “Sheldwich Kent: Ghosts, Ghouls, and Pagan Gods” Written by G.
