About this title


The authors of London: City of the Dead and London: The Executioners City expand their history of grim, ancient punishments into the realm of the "social" punishments used in workhouses, churches, and schools All manner of vile punishments from London's long and bloody history are collected here. Over the centuries, many hundreds have expired inside dank, rat-infested cells, or while "dancing the Tyburn jig" at the end of a swinging rope, and many of the sites 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, it is a heartbreaking survey of the nation’s penal history. Richly illustrated and filled with victims and villains, nobles, executioners, and torturers, it will delight historians, travelers, and armchair travelers alike.

About the Author:

David Brandon and Alan Brooke collaborated previously on London: City of the Dead and London: The Executioner's City.
