Ducking Stool – The Game

Our longtime readers may remember that we took a look at the Medieval device known as the ducking stool awhile back.

If you want to refresh your memory, the original post is here:

Thanks to our friends over at the Rechtsgeschiedenis Blog, we’ve learned that there is a ducking stool game, created by Britain’s National Archives. You can play it here:
