The "Dunking" torture method

Dunking was used to get confessions out of supposed witches, murderers, thieves, other criminals as well but those were the three most common. Basically all it was was a wooden device that a criminal was tied to and would be dunked under water until they admitted to committing the crime. The torture would last hours if it had to, or until the expected criminal died.

  1. This was a completely fair method. If you did nothing to get suspicioned in the first place, nothing would happen to you
