🎧 Executions in Medieval London
Latest Podcast Episodes 🎧 • 26m
Public executions were a major part of Londoners’ lives from the twelfth century right through to the nineteenth. Now the Museum of London Docklands has brought the rarely told and often tragic human stories behind these events to a superb new exhibition, containing a range of fascinating objects, paintings and projections, many of which have rarely been seen in public.
In this edition of Gone Medieval, Matt Lewis explores some of the exhibition’s Medieval stories and items with curator Meriel Jeater.
The Senior Producer on this episode was Elena Guthrie. It was edited and produced by Rob Weinberg.
**WARNING: This episode contains graphic descriptions of methods of execution**
