Synopsis

Banished, Beheaded or Boiled in Oil A Hair-Raising History of Crime and Punishment Throughout the Ages! by Neil Tonge

Welcome, Reader! This is the history book you've been waiting for! Steal away to the past with us and discover all there is to know about Tudor torture, Medieval misdemeanour, Victorian villainy and Aztec altar executions. Take a trip through history to find out about the grim, gruesome and downright gut-churning methods of punishment societies employed in the past - from being boiled alive in ancient Greece to being split in two in the Middle Ages. Who gave criminals a very literal roasting? Who used to execute animals for committing crimes? And what is the most popular penalty in history? Dip into these chronicles of crime and punishment and find out about law-makers, law-breakers and the most stomach-churning ways in which they were penalised. A great tool for the KS2 study of the changes in crime and punishment in Britain and the world.
