Medieval Torture Devices You Never Want To Encounter (21 pics)
Medieval times were strange. Back in the day they used some pretty gruesome techniques when it comes to torture. You're not going to believe that people used to do these things.
The Rat Torture - A cheap and effective way to torture someone was with the use of rats. There were many variants, but the most common was to force a rat through a victim's body as a way to escape. This was done as follows:The victim was completely restrained and tied to the ground or any horizontal surface. A rat was then placed on his stomach covered by a metallic container. As the container was gradually heated, the rat began to look for a way out - through the victim's body. Digging a hole usually took a few hours and caused agonizing pain for the victim. This resulted in death.
