CRIME & PUNISHMENT
Crime & Punishment is, and has been, a part of human behaviour for thousands of years.
We have a huge collection of period instruments, from Victorian finger boards to full size guillotine, branding irons, gallows, Thumbscrews, Pillory, Stocks and many more.
The fine line between punishment and torture is examined, plus a look back at some of the ghastly executions of the past, including the Crucifixion, Hanging, Drawing & Quartering, Burning at the Stake, Drowning witches and more.
A very thought-provoking session indeed.
