The Romans were a fun-filled bunch of giant, scary, hairy men who would torture
enemies and criminals. Many blood filled thoughts filled the minds men and women who were soon to meet their doom.
Some of the most brutal torture methods originated in Rome, Italy. Methods such as
Crucifixion, Bestiarii and many more. Many people think that when you’re crucified you are nailed to a cross, but that's not the case. When you’re crucified your hands and feet are tied to down to the cross and after a while your body weight starts pulling you down as your lungs collapse. One method, Bestiarii,you would be thrown in a hole filled with lions and you would be eaten alive. That’s just two things that could happen if you tried to get away with a crime or anything else that shouldn't be done. Those methods were actually originated in Rome, many others were just copied from other countries. (Some other good ones I found were not school appropriate.)
