    Interesting - though they could certainly use a better copywriter... There`s a whole lot of hard stops in the way that those paragraphs read, no flow at all.

    This is horrible! Not the torture, the article. Firstly: Ancient Greece is not "Medieval times" and torture was and isn`t constricted to the `dark ages`, as we know thanks to modern "interrogation methods". Secondly, the Iron Maiden was never used. It was created long after the middle ages to make the medieval castles look more `medieval`. It worked so well, a lot of people still think it was used. Thank you article, for not researching! All in all a poor article on an interessting topc.

    no but he dark age had many intonations in torture means, once could say it was the only science that flourished during those times

    (especially after we killed of the good portion of wiccian, herbalists, and other people that the common people had faith in to help resolve there problems)

    The "witches" were burnt in early modern times, not in the middle ages. There may have been some cases involving magic but the mass murder was much, much later. The `dark ages` weren`t nearly as dark as people tend to think they were.

    Yeah...

    Cracked did two articles with pretty much all the same torture devices.

    Both have been posted on here.

    Both were MUCH better articles. In both the writing and the research.
