MEDIEVAL LAW AND PUNISHMENT
In addition to eye-catching visuals on every page (all fully captioned), the book features timelines, maps, and numerous fact boxes. Main subjects are divided into 14 two-page spreads with artwork and decorative borders attractively arranged around text passages. Subtitles add focus and glossary terms are printed in boldface. Topics include laws for a family, children, and women; going to court; life in a medieval prison; inquisitions, which were run by the church and dealt with the crime of heresy; keepers of the law; fees, fines, and taxes; and medieval punishments, including the stocks and pillory, being outlawed, and hangings.
