11 Horrific, And Thankfully Historical, Ways In Which Humans Killed Each Other

The Vestal Virgins were chosen to join the priesthood well before puberty, and then swore an oath of celibacy for 30 years. They were seen as pure and holy, and the punishment for hurting one was death. Which is why, when a vestal was sentenced to death, the only appropriate method of execution was burying her alive, as that would not spill her blood. It was also illegal for anyone to be buried alive within the confines of the city, so the priestess would be put into an underground room with enough food and water for a few days, so that she wasn’t technically being buried alive.
