Witches in the 1600s were probably in hiding, what with all the people parading through the streets with pitchforks and lit torches trying to find someone to accuse of witchcraft? I'm proud of being a Wiccan witch, but I probably would have kept it hidden in the 17th century.

Witches were burned at the stake, stoned (having large heavy stones placed on your body crushing you slowly to death), exile, drowning and hanging. Depending on where you are the punishments vary.
