    Hanging has been around for centuries. In its simplest form, it is a form of execution by pushing a person from a high point, typically a gallows or tree, and then letting them swing.

    Aside from demonstrating the cruelty of man, hanging also served as a form of public entertainment. Crowds would gather to watch criminals hang as a form of warning to others. In some cases, hung criminals were left to decompose in public view as a warning to others.
