Punishments

Mar 13, 2010

A start has been made on a list of punishments over time with a brief introduction and links to further information. I’m keen to include examples of local peculiarities in this list. For example, in Halifax, where I teach, there was a ‘Gibbet’ in use from the 12th to 17th century. This gibbet wasn’t a cage as you’d expect from the name but a device not too sissimilar to the Guillotine. Please send any local examples via e-mail, or add them as comments on this post.

Also – several additions to the teachers resources page.
