During this time there was no mass media so most people went to public places to find out what was going on in parliament etc. I suppose one of the reasons is that if the execution was carried out in public then an example was being made and people would be less likely to break the law.

Tudor times were brutal when it came to the punishment of rime.

  • People were hung for crimes such as stealing, treason, rebellion, riot or murder.
  • Women found guilty of either treason or petty treason were sentenced to be burned alive at the stake
  • For attempting to murder someone you could be boiled alive in hot water.
  • Accused witches were dunked into a river, to see if they were innocent or guilty. If they floated, they were considered guilty and burnt at the stake. If they sank, they were innocent but died anyway, by drowning. Either way, they perished.
  • Many non capital crimes led to punishment like stoning, flogging and being put in the stocks. All of there could be fatal not just painful.

As to the why, the Tudor authorities felt that public harshness towards criminals would put the fear of the law into people and prevent further crime. The people saw public executions as entertainment.

Well, I think that they were public to scare other people from committing crimes, or sometimes for entertainment.
