Publisher's Summary

Throughout the medieval period, it was believed that the only way to keep order was to make sure that the people were scared of the punishments given for crimes committed.
For this reason, all crimes from stealing to burglary of houses to murder had harsh punishments. Although there were gaols, they were generally used to hold a prisoner awaiting trial rather than as a means of punishment. Fines, shaming (being placed in stocks), mutilation (cutting off a part of the body), or death were the most common forms of medieval punishment.
There was no police force in the medieval period so law enforcement was in the hands of the community.
