    London has seen many public executions in its long history. This fascinating book surveys the places of execution, such as Tyburn, Smithfield, Wapping and Tower Hill; profiles the unfortunates who met their ends there; and describes the hideous methods used to dispatch them. Illustrated with photographs, prints, maps and broadsheets, it presents a compelling picture of a brutal society in which even minor thefts were punished by an agonizing death before an excited crowd.
