Medieval torture Devices By Tyson parker

Serious crimes were heard by the King’s court. The accused person had to a trial by ordeal to decide if they were guilty or not.

The Manorial Court Dealt with all but the most serious crimes. A Jury of 12 men was chosen by the village.

Thieves either got fined and had to do extra work or got their hands cut off.

Murderers were sentenced to death by hanging or beheading

For high Treason you would be hung, then cut down while still alive, then you would be beheaded and hacked into 4 quarters.

If you were guilty of witchcraft then you were either killed by strangulation or if it was serious enough they would burn the “witch” at stake.
