Tudor law and order at the Guildhall

We had a wonderful day at the Guildhall.  First we learned some Tudor phrases, then we split into groups for drama.  Each group was given a crime scenario to act out.  DSCF2857Andrew, from the Guildhall, took the part of the lawyer, Mrs Walsh, who was the Clerk to the court, had to record everything that took place in the courtroom and Mrs Callaghan, as the judge, had to pass the sentence for each case.  Each one of us was either an accused person, a witness or a defendant (the person the crime had been committed against). It was quite alarming to find out the different punishments that were given during these times.
