Abstract

The purpose of the thesis is proving that not only the Middle Ages can be considered brutal in connection with capital punishments and executions, but savagery has an affect on the Modern Ages, as well. To prove my statement I describe the most well-known execution methods with the related laws from the Anglo-Saxons until the twentieth century, with emphasis on hanging, which was the most popular execution method in England, murder and minor offences. I have come to the conclusion that although human efforts were made from the end of the Middle Ages to eliminate barbaric executions and orders, but it took a long time. It can be stated that brutal executions ended with the abolish of hanging, drawing and quartering in the beginning of the nineteenth century.
