Death by Poison, The Story of Lana Clayton

The act of taking someone’s life through poisoning has been around since Ancient Rome and Greece, when it was the preferred method of assassination. Plants like nightshade, hemlock, oleander, and snakeroot were often mixed into a target’s food or drink. These natural poisons became less useful in Medieval Europe, when antidotes were developed for many poisonous plants.
