NORFOLK — Author and historian Nancy E. Sheppard will be presenting a new lecture where she will tell some of the darker, more nefarious stories from Hampton Roads’ vibrant history.

The lecture will be at the MacArthur Memorial Visitors Center and Theater on Wednesday.

Attendees can expect to learn about cannibalism in Jamestown, the dark history of witches in Hampton Roads, the tragic murder of a young Kempsville girl and many more true tales of crime and mayhem, according to the event’s Facebook Page.

The details of the book date all the way back to the 16th century with every event taking place in Hampton Roads, according to the Norfolk Historical Society’s event page.

The event is put on by the Norfolk Historical Society and will run from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. A book signing will follow the program.
