The Scavenger's Daughter was a torture device used in the reign of King Henry VIII. It was invented by Sir Leonard Skeffington, son of the executioner Sir William Skeffington, who got the nickname "scavenger" due to the many tortures he had done to the criminals of England.

The Scavenger's Daughter is an A-frame metal rack where the victim's head was strapped to the top point of the A, and the body was strapped in a fetal position with the legs facing downward.

Two heavy metal bars were used to compress the victim to a point where blood is gushing out from every orifice like the eyes, nose, ears, and mouth.

The Scavenger's Daughter was a perfect compliment to the Duke of Exeter's Daughter (the Rack), because it compressed the body instead of stretching it.
