A UND history professor and expert on witches will head to Washington D.C. next month to shoot a National Geographic special called "The Witch Hunters Bible." It's about a historic manual to witch hunting.

The manual was written in 1487 by two Germans.

It was about how to find a witch, and showed proof they did exist.

UND Professor Hans Broedel wrote a book about the manual released back in 2000. He says today there is still a fascination with witches. He'll go to the Library of Congress and analyze the manual for the show and talk about today's fascination with witches and witchcraft.

Broedel says thousands were executed for witchcraft. He'll shoot the special from November 16th to the 18th.
