Was the defendant seated on an elevated platform, to maximise visibility?
I know they used to do public hangings in that area too. Did they erect seating, like the things Yanks would call Bleachers?
No not that- it was to allow one 'person' in particular to see justice was served.
A mirror in front of a noose, so that the guilty party could watch their own demise?
Alternatively, a hidden room from which the interested party (perhaps the monarch?) could observe the proceedings, unobserved?
No not that- one more guess before I give the answer and open floor.
A window in the roof so god could see that justice was being done in her name.
The statue of Lady Justice doesn't have a blindfold, but that's the current building, not the original.
Thats near enough. The original court was in the open courtyard exposed to the elements. Only the judge and some clerks had any sort of cover.
It was so justice could be seen to be done by God and to a lesser extent the public. There was also another theory that the officials were less likely to catch disease from defendants & public by it being outdoors.
Your scales of justice M'lud.
Very interesting. As soon as DaleCooper said that I thought that his answer was probably the one.
It would appear their god couldn't see through walls and ceilings, not so omnipotent nor omniscient after all.

What handicap had to be overcome which makes these achievements all the more remarkable?
He/she/it is an animal, probably a cat.
He is not a (70 year old) cat or any other animal.
Was he fictional?
Was he a woman?
That is correct, read more here: http://traditions.gatech.edu/gpb.html and here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_P._Burdell
So, what is the next term in this sequence?
That's not right but I get the feeling that you're very close.
I have one left after this at the moment, so will guess that if this is incorrect!
Hint: Say them out loud in various ways.
1? Are they dance steps? Ha ha.
Would be an awkward dance I think if they were!
Next hint: say them out loud as single digits. (So the first line would obviously be "one", the next "one one" and so on).
I think I've got it:
The previous line (1211) consists of one "1", one "2" and two "1s" if that makes sense.
That's correct, it's the "Speak-and-Say" sequence where each line describes the line before it.
Phew, that was hard work. I tried crystal lattices, Morse code, Roman numerals, electron shells, numbers in base 3 and rather like fowler9 I even thought there might be a musical connection.
"Splatalogue" - what is it?
When you kill a fly with the Argos book.
No, but I was hoping for some imaginative answers like that. Keep them coming, but try to keep them clean.
Nothing you made it up? Is it my floor? Otherwise not a clue. Ha ha.
This is probably nonsense, but I'm sure I recall some survey being carried out whereby people counted the number of insects squashed on the front of their cars.
