Top definition
A torture technique that involves tying an accused criminal to a wooden wheel and rolling it on hard, sharp, bumpy surface causing irreversible damage to bones and organs. Sometimes if the person was still alive, an excecutioner would hammer the brain with iron or drop the wheel in a lake. The bodies were often left on display to dismay criminals.
