Victorian crime and punishment
Crime and punishment in Victorian Britain was very different
compared to today - or was it?
Due to popular demand join Doug Newlyn again for a fascinating
talk at Essex Police Museum in Chelmsford, on Thursday,
September 1, 2011.
This interesting evening on the evolution of criminal activity
during Queen Victoria’s reign, takes place from 7.30 to 9pm.
Curator Becky Wash says, “Life was very different in Victorian
times and this talk provides an interesting thought as to whether
criminal activity has increased over time, or is merely a
thought suggested to us through the media.”
‘Victorian Crimes’ by Doug Newlyn is part of Essex Police
Museum’s new talks programme covering a variety of police related
subjects including Essex murders and police
Visitors to the talks will also have the opportunity to view the
Essex Police Museum’s displays.
Tickets cost £3 per person and include light refreshments.
