Description
All manner of grim and ancient punishments have colored London's long and bloody history, intended as much to exact revenge or to frighten and horrify potential wrongdoers as to actually punish the criminal. Over the centuries, many hundreds have expired inside the capital's dank, rat-infested cells, or while "dancing the Tyburn jig" at the end of a swinging rope, and many of the sites in this book have become bywords for infamy. From the Tower and Newgate prison to the Clink and the Fleet, this book explores London's criminal heritage, including the stocks and pillories that lie, almost forgotten, in churchyards and squares across the city, and the many shocking punishments exacted inside the region's churches, workhouses, and schools.
