Crime and Punishment Through the Ages

Paperback £8.99

Can you imagine a time when the punishment for stealing was death by hanging? Or when a person had to plunge their arm into boiling water to prove their innocence? It is hard to believe, but these are all punishments for crimes committed in Britain during the last 1,000 years. Some crimes have changed and others remain the same. However, how we punish crime has changed a lot, thankfully! This book tells the gruesome story of British crime and punishment over the centuries, from 1066 to the present. With fascinating topic fact boxes and a timeline, this book will keep readers on the straight and narrow! Part of the Aspects of British History Beyond 1066 series.
