Medieval Crime and Punishment

Shaun Johnston

You have taken your seat in the Royal Court,<b> </b>ready to assist the King in handing out punishments to the beggarly peasant law breakers before you. Not only is it your first day on the job but it is also not your job. In desperation you have posed as somebody else who had recently died, so you must work extra hard today!
Oh no! The King has fallen ill and you have been asked to apply all of today's punishments! You can't remember which punishment goes with which crime! Would you rather?
Give it a go and risk failure
Admit you're a fraud and face certain death
