1. Crucifixion

Crucifixion was one of the most horrible and painful methods of execution in antiquity. This punishment was practiced between the 6th century BC. and the 4th century e.

The crucifixion was mainly used by Seligucizi, Carthaginians, Persians, and Romans. The convict was bound (or nailed) by a large cross of wood and was allowed to hang until he died.

Usually, the convict bleeds to death or quit because of hunger and thirst. If he was lucky, the condemned was overcome by the extreme heat or the unbearable cold.

This method of execution was mainly used in Antiquity, but it is also occasionally practiced in some countries.

2. Skinning

Skinning is one of the most brutal and uncivilized methods of torture practiced in the Middle Ages. This appalling method consists in removing the skin of a still alive prisoner.

After the skin was removed, the convict was allowed to bleed to death. For an additional pain, the executioners sprinkled salt directly on the flesh of the condemned in agony.

This was a public execution method, practiced on the killers, captured soldiers and "witches." Such executions took place about a millennium ago in areas such as the Middle East and Africa.

3. Pull the wheel

Wheel riding was a popular capital punishment in the Middle Ages. However, in some areas, it was also practiced in the nineteenth century.

A wooden wheel was used to stretch the victim, while its limbs hung along the wheel spokes. Then the bones of the convict were broken one by one with a hammer or an iron bar.

It was a process that usually takes a lot. Most of the times, the victim was still alive after each bone in his body had been crushed.

The method originated in Ancient Greece, from where it spread to other countries, such as France, Russia, Germany, Spain, Portugal and Sweden.

The punishment was also used on the territory of our country during the peasant uprising of Horea, Closca and Crişan. After the revolt failed, Horea and Closca were executed by firing in front of 3,000 peasants.

4. Eviscerarea

Evisceration was one of the toughest punishments. It was a method used to punish thieves and those accused of adultery.

The vital organs were removed one after another from the body, mainly through the abdomen. Sources show that the method was practiced in England, the Netherlands, Belgium and Japan.

5. Pulling

A method appreciated by the prince Vlad the Impaler, stamping is one of the most brutal methods of execution in history. Those condemned were forced to sit on a sharp and thick pillar.

Then the pin was raised to the vertical, and the victim was allowed to slide on her, pulled by her own weight. The victim was pierced through the rectum, through the vagina, through a part of the body or even through the mouth.

This causes abnormal bleeding and extremely painful injuries. Then the convict was thrown into a pit. Thus, the victim went through a long period of suffering before he died.

Punching was a preferred method of Romans, Chinese, Greeks, and Turks. In the Middle Ages, the method continued to be used in Europe and Asia.

6. Crushing

This was another horrible execution method, practiced mainly in Europe and some parts of North America. The title tells us briefly what it was about, but the burning of the victim was not a process left to chance.

The convict's body was burned progressively in the following order: the calves, thighs and hands, thorax and forearms, chest, face. Finally, the victim was dying.

It was very painful, though sometimes the victim died of carbon monoxide poisoning just before the fire touched his legs.

A catran was placed on the convict's body, which made the fire burn faster and the process took less time.

8. Death by sawing

Death by sawing was used in Europe, during the Roman Empire, and in some areas of Asia. The convict was usually hung upside down and with his legs loose.

Then the saw was slowly passed through the victim's body, eventually ending his head in two pieces. Usually, the convict did not die until the saw came to his head.

9. Hung, drowned and writhing

This method, mainly used in England, is considered one of the most brutal methods of execution of all time. As the name looks like, the execution took place in three stages.

The convict was attached to a barbecue or a wooden panel and was pulled to the place of execution. There, he was hanged (near death), emaciated, eviscerated, beheaded and writhing.

Remains of the victim were often exposed in public places in the country, such as London Bridge. For reasons of public decency, women condemned for high treason were burned.

The punishment was used only for the men found guilty of this crime.

10. Slow Cut in Slices (Lingchi)

The method was also known as "slow death" or "death by a thousand cuts." In China, it was called "Lingchi".

Around 90, Lingchi was a method used to execute criminals and was practiced in China. In this procedure, a knife was used to physically remove parts of the body over a long period of time.

Lingchi was a method applied for very serious crimes, such as betrayal or murder. The Chinese kings used it to intimidate people.
