is justice? The main methods of punishment – imprisonment, corporal
punishment and death – have not changed since ancient times, but
the practices and legal justifications have differed throughout one society
to the next.
a group you are going to explore the topic "Did the punishment fit
the crime?" Each member of your group will become an expert on methods
of punishment within their chosen time period or cultural grouping. You
will have to come back together to answer the essential question:
the values in the society you are investigating - did the punishments
in your chosen time period reflect the values in that society? Do you
believe the punishments/sanctions were appropriate for that time?
