Art, Historical and Archealogical Artifacts of Legal History
Skeffington's Irons, or "The Scavenger's Daughter", was a torture device used during King Henry VIII's reign, and the reign of his daughter, Queen Mary I. It was invented during Henry VIII's reign by his Lieutenant of the Tower, Leonard Skeffington. It compressed the body with the head between the legs, locked in that position. It was rarely mentioned in documents because it was probably not used as much as the rack.
Henry VIII's Psalter
Henry VIII's Psalter - This is Henry VIII's personal book of psalms, which was written and illuminated in 1540 by an emigré from the court of the French King Francis I. It contains many beautifully decorated initials and illuminations. Several of these link Henry visually to King David and perhaps even to Christ himself, showing that Henry wanted to identify himself with these biblical figures.
