Edward Dun

‘Edward Dun’ – Executioner: ‘Dun’, who was the Executioner for London during the mid to late 17th century, recounts the nature of crime and punishment during the time of the Stuarts. The presentation may be specifically themed to address the execution of the Gunpowder Plotters, the death of King Charles I, the death of the Regicides, and the aftermath of the Monmouth Rebellion and the ‘Bloody Assizes’. The presentation, which may also be styled to address issues relating to ‘Highwaymen’ in the post civil-war period, is suitable for an exterior location and is complemented by 12’ gallows (complete with ‘body’!), a pillory, and an array of period accurate items and equipment.
