Symposium Session – Crime and Punishment in Victorian Britain

Crime and Punishment in Victorian Britain

Divorcing itself from the “Bloody Code” justice system of previous centuries, Victorians sought out more enlightened methods of controlling crime. The results, however, could be both cruel and bizarre.
