What was the extent of weaponry and technology around the time of the Salem witch trials? I know there were low-tech guns, but what other weapons were [still] in use? What was the extent of infrastructure such as medical care or waste disposal? Did people have outhouses by then or were they still just throwing stuff in the ditch? Normally I'm pretty good with history, but this is a big foggy area for me, which is really unfortunate because I consider that time period very interesting. Sorry if this is a really stupid question, I'm not generally this ignorant of the past.
