The Guillotine

On 20 March 1792 the French Assembly agreed to use the guillotine as a humane method of execution. Dr Guillotin proposed using a mechanical beheading device and it was named after him. However the idea was not new. A device for beheading people was mentioned in Dublin, Ireland in 1307. www.localhistories.org/puntime.html
