Really Revolting History - EXECUTIONS- This book puts the blood back into spatter and the gore back into gory. A no holds barred look at executions through the ages. Beginning with the delights of the Roman colosseum where criminals were ripped apart by wild animals it moves through the middle ages where criminals were broken, burnt, boiled, hung, quartered, drowned and buried alive. Journeying to France it looks at the invention of the guillotine and explores how long heads remained conscious after getting the chop. The art of hanging is examined before use of corpses in medicine and the trade in body parts is explored. Impalement, the Electric Chair, the Gas Chamber and death by Lethal Injection are other topics covered in this deliciously gruesome book. Not for the faint hearted it is definitely 'Adults Only.'
