Crime and punishment, and how they have changed over the centuries, is one subject covered in GCSE History. One of the eras looked at is the Middle Ages.
In 1066 Anglo-Saxon England became Norman England and the High Middle Ages began. Forms of punishment used by the English for perpetrators of crime gradually faded. Trial by ordeal persisted until 1215, but features of the modern legal system, like juries and magistrates, began to appear. Yet still there was no police force.
