Historical Torture Museum

The Heretics Fork

"This instrument consisted of two little forks one set against the other, with the four prongs rammed into the flesh, under the chin and above the chest. A small collar supported the instrument in such a manner that the victims were forced to hold their head erect, thus preventing any movement.
The forks did not penetrate any vital points, and thus suffering was prolonged and death avoided. Obviously the victims' hands were tied behind their back."

I'm not sure if the link to this site has been posted previously. If it has, my apologies for the redundancy.
