An illustrative talk by Dr. Simon Wenham

There were considerable fears about the lack of law and order in Victorian Britain. Not only were some urban areas viewed as highly dangerous, but there were several high-profile crimes that both transfixed and terrified the Victorians.
Join Simon Wenham to explore the activities of the so-called ‘underbelly’ of society and the State’s attempt to control and punish criminality.

Crime & Punishment in Victorian Britain, is an online talk from Thame Museum, as part of its online monthly talks programme. Tickets are available from the online shop on the museum website: www.thamemuseum.org
