Interesting tale of little known, quite savage, history.,
This review is from: The Bloodletter's Daughter (A Novel of Old Bohemia) (Kindle Edition)
I found the historical context of this book fascinating. Somewhat spoiled by unconvincing heroine and
" Americanisms" such as " gotten".

Gotten actually dates back to the Middle Ages and did not drop out of common usage in British English till around the 18th century.
