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.

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.
