I'm not certain if this has been asked.

What are the "cursing" equivalents from Macbeth and King Arthur's times compared to modern day "cursing"(sh*t, F**k, B*tch, etc.)?

I imagine the "olden times" curse words/expletives and similar expressions would be considered quite "tame" and even silly compared to modern stuff. Though I suppose they could potentially be taken up as "alternative curses" by modern day generations.

It's something that's made me wonder.

I'd have to research that. I may have known the answer at some point, but it's just been too long.
