In conclusion, all of the torture done in history has happening from groups, individuals, and stated throughout history since ancient days to modern history.

The scavenger's daughter was named after a British named skevington. What the device was that it was a hoop of an iron with a hinge inside in the middle. The victim was forced to crouch down and was often held in that position for hours with a lot of weight and pain on their backs that the spine would be dislocated.
The stake was when the victim would be tied and put around wood and then it would be lit. Sometimes it could take about 30 minutes for them to loose consciousness or up to 2 hours if it was windy, they would be slowly burned to death.
The wheel was used differently every time. The victim would be tied up and maybe there was spikes on it, or the torturers would make the wheel roll into fire or down a hill. But whatever bone or body piece was torn out, they would put the wheel on a pole with the person looking at their own body parts.
The brazen bull was an execution machine designed in Greece. The victims were usually placed inside with their tongues cut out first, then the fires would be lit around the bull. The person inside would scream in pain, but the cries and movements made would be muted by the bulls brass and make the bull sound real and alive making the crowd watching amazed.

Physiological torture included public humiliation, witnessing torture of loved ones, threats of rape, threats of loved ones, threats of death, sleep deprivation, exploitation of phobias, solitary confinement, and much more.
Physical pain was mostly used a lot and there's a lot of devices and machines that were being used a lot. The iron maiden was the worst torture machine ever created. It was a sarcophagus that had spikes inside it. The victim would be put in there for several hours, the spikes piercing the organs, and after, two more spikes were added to pierce the eyes.
Torture is when someone in authority puts their victim in pain either physical or physiological. Both of these create the same effects of the person being tortured. Slavery, World War II, and the Cold War are all examples of torture. Slavery in America started in 1619 when a Dutch ship brought 20 African American slaves onboard. The main states where slaves were is Missouri, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, or South Carolina. They worked from day to night in either a cotton,rice, indigo, or tobacco fields. The slaves lived in poor living conditions such as on a small farm or many masters took in about 50 slaves in. But the masters would take advantage of the slave women and they would rape them or do a sexual act to them, and for the rebellious slaves they would brutally torture them. They would beat them to death, use machines like the thumbscrew, a collar with spikes around their neck, a cotton screw, a whip and many more. Thankfully, slavery ended on January 1, 1863 when Lincoln used the emancipation proclamation to free them. World War II lasted from 1939 to 1945. Although Hitler did not torture the Jews inside the U.S, it was still used during interrogation. During the war, U.S military interrogated high-level Nazis for information. The U.S did not use physical pain but they used methods such as tricking them into thinking to turn them in to the Soviets. Other interrogation included shocking, or physical exhaustion, or beatings.
