hi, im researching law and order, crime and punishment in tudor stuart england for history.
just wondering if anybody has any information on
1 what crimes were considered particularly serious, and what laws and actions were passed to control this.
2 'what legal processes were availible in tudor stuart england'
3 what crimes were considerd worthy of long term imprisonment or the death penalty.
any help regarding these questions would be greatly appreciated. thanks
[ed. note - this is obviously a popular research subject in schools, since it comes up every year. Some of these questions area little more specific than we've gotten in the past, which is why I went ahead and posed them.]
