Best Answer

Swords and arrows were common ways for soldiers to kill one another in medieval times. Battle axes, maces, morning stars (spiked maces), and halberds were other common instruments of war.

Witches might be burned, drowned, stoned, or hanged. Many criminals in Europe were hanged. Some were stoned or pressed--which means stones were piled on them until they were crushed. Quite a few were tortured to death in various devious ways.
