    Crushing

    Death by crushing or pressing is a method of execution that has a history during which the techniques used varied greatly from place to place. This form of execution is no longer sanctioned by any governing body. Louis Rousselet described this Central Indian execution in "Le Tour du Monde" in 1868. A common method of death throughout South and South-East Asia for over 4,000 years was crushing by elephants. The Romans and Carthaginians used this method on occasion. In Roman mythology, Tarpeia was a Roman maiden who betrayed the city of Rome to the Sabines in exchange for what she thought would be a reward of jewellery. She was instead crushed to death and her body cast from the Tarpeian Rock which now bears her name. The method was also used extensively by the Nguyen Dynasty in Vietnam to punish their enemies during the early 19th century. Crushing is also reported from Pre-Columbian America, notably in the Aztec empire.
