About Crime and Punishment in Georgian Scotland
Thomas Turlis, the Hangman, recounts the nature of his profession; in which he hangs, flogs, brands, and mutilates, in accordance with the law. He takes you to the Georgian times when there were in excess of 200 offences for which you could be hanged. It was the time of the 'Bloody Code', where the minimum age for capital punishment was as low as 7!
