  • Live Burial Is A Tried-And-True Method on Random Historical Torture Methods Designed To Make The Pain Last As Long As Possible

    (#12) Live Burial Is A Tried-And-True Method

    Live burial is one of the most widespread, longlasting, and well-documented execution methods in the world. In ancient Egypt, for example, some slaves who were forced to build pyramids were interred alive in the walls of the structures. Live burial was also used throughout Europe from a time before some European countries even existed, and it was a common punishment for heresy in the Holy Roman Empire. 

    However, this is not the extent of this punishment's practice; reports of this form of execution also exist from the Nanking Massacre

  • Keelhauling Used Barnacles To Pull The Skin From A Body on Random Historical Torture Methods Designed To Make The Pain Last As Long As Possible

    (#1) Keelhauling Used Barnacles To Pull The Skin From A Body

    Surprising no one, pirates were not afraid to dole out some truly horrendous punishments to seamen behaving badly while at sea. Keelhauling was one of the more gruesome of pirate punishment practices. 

    While this drawing makes keelhauling look like an awesome pirate game, it was actually the opposite of fun. The crueler alternative to walking the plank, keelhauling involved throwing a person off of a boat with a rope attached to them. As the boat moved, the person would be pulled underneath it, and their body would scrape against the rough, barnacle-covered bottom of the ship.

    The process was repeated until the person's skin was fully scraped off. This was, as you might imagine, often fatal.

  • The Blood Eagle Suffocated A Person With The Appearance Of Flight on Random Historical Torture Methods Designed To Make The Pain Last As Long As Possible

    (#2) The Blood Eagle Suffocated A Person With The Appearance Of Flight

    As brutally demonstrated on an episode of the show Vikings, the "blood eagle" was an incredibly tortuous method of execution used by Vikings. A person's back would be cut open and their ribs would be pulled through the open skin and bent outwards, exposing their lungs and creating "wings." 

    It may not have taken years to perish, but however long it was, it probably felt like an eternity.

  • The Judas Cradle Slowly Impaled Through The Anus on Random Historical Torture Methods Designed To Make The Pain Last As Long As Possible

    (#5) The Judas Cradle Slowly Impaled Through The Anus

    The Judas cradle was an amazingly simple torture design that could produce some truly horrendous results. Basically, a Judas cradle is a chair - except there's a large, pointed triangle (facing upward, obviously) where the seat should be. When subjected to this form of torture, a person would be bound and hoisted above the chair using pulleys and ropes. From there, they would be slowly lowered onto the triangle, which would begin to enter either their anus or vagina. If a torturer wanted to increase the pain of the inestimably painful process, they would cover the triangle in oil.

    The amount of time it would take to perish differed from person to person. Those who didn't immediately perish from the process would do so later as a result of infection, as the device was never cleaned between uses.

  • Scaphism on Random Historical Torture Methods Designed To Make The Pain Last As Long As Possible

    (#4) Scaphism

    • Cause Of Death

    Scaphism is a brutal ancient Persian method of execution. Also known as "the boats," a person would be strapped into a narrow boat or hollowed out tree trunk. They would then be forced to ingest milk and honey to the point of sickness - with the goal of actually giving them diarrhea - and extra honey would be poured onto their orifices. The milk, honey, and human excrement attracted bugs while keeping the target alive and prolonging their suffering.

    Sometimes, even as their flesh turned gangrenous, targets would be fed on for many days, forcing them to live on and suffer. Eventually, though, the person would perish, usually as a result of blood sepsis or gangrenous infection.

  • Breast Rippers Did Exactly What They Sound Like on Random Historical Torture Methods Designed To Make The Pain Last As Long As Possible

    (#10) Breast Rippers Did Exactly What They Sound Like

    Breast rippers were a special kind of device reserved for the "wickedest" women in medieval Europe. If you were a woman convicted of heresy, adultery, self-inflicted miscarriage, or any of a number of other crimes, then you could expect to be bound to a wall and have your breasts pulled from your body with this device.

    Sometimes heated, sometimes left cold, breast rippers were essentially a large set of pincers that would pierce the flesh and slowly tear muscle from bone, marking and mutilating women for their misdeeds.
